Retainers in Gainesville

Secure Lasting Results

Tell Your Teeth to Hold Position

If you’ve had braces of any kind, you need a retainer.

While the braces or aligners are the “muscle” that move your teeth into place, retainers are the warden that keep them in line. Because of their importance, Trü Orthodontics offers the most affordable way to get retainers in Gainesville.

Retainers Overview

Retainers can be plastic, similar to a clear aligner, or they can be shaped metal wire fixed to a plastic frame. There are also permanent bottom retainers that are small, inconspicuous wires placed behind the front bottom teeth.


Retainers are the only way of ensuring teeth do not shift out of place after braces.

How Retainers Work

We create customized retainers for every patient who gets braces or aligners. We design the retainers to hold your teeth in their new, corrected position.

What to Expect

After completing orthodontic treatment, retainers are used to maintain the new position of your teeth and prevent them from shifting back. They should be worn as prescribed by your Gainesville orthodontist, which often means nightly at first and possibly less frequently over time. It’s important to keep them clean by brushing them daily and soaking them in a cleaning solution as recommended. Store your retainers in their protective case to avoid damage when not in use.
