Retainers: The Best Way to Keep Your Child’s Teeth Straight at True Pediatric Dental Care of Bloomfield NJ

Dental retainers in Bloomfield, NJ

At True Pediatric Dental Care of Bloomfield NJ, we understand the importance of keeping your child’s teeth straight and healthy. That is why we offer retainers as an effective way to maintain your child’s smile. Retainers are a great option for children who have completed orthodontic treatment or for those who need extra help with their bite alignment.

What Are Retainers?

Retainers are custom-made appliances that fit snugly over your child’s teeth and hold them in place after braces have been removed. They can be removable or fixed, depending on the type of orthodontic treatment and what kind of results you want to achieve for your child’s smile. Removable retainers are usually made from clear plastic with metal wires that hold the teeth in place while fixed retainers consist of thin metal wires bonded directly onto the rear (lingual) surfaces or front (labial) surfaces of the teeth by a dental professional such as our dentists here at True Pediatric Dental Care in Bloomfield NJ.

Benefits Of Wearing Retainers

Wearing a retainer helps keep newly straightened teeth aligned so they don’t move out of position again over time due to age-related changes like growth spurts, jawbone development, etc., which can cause misalignment to recur. It’s important to follow the follow-up treatment recommended by our dentists here at True Pediatrics Dental Care in Bloomfield NJ. In addition,  wearing a retainer post-treatment helps prevent overcrowding issues that may occur later on  when adult molars come into play during teenage years.  The retainer maintains the space between teeth so there is room for all permanent adult molars when they eventually erupt.

How To Take Proper Care Of Your Child’s Retainer

It is important that you and your child take proper care of the retainer if you want it to last! We will also monitor the efficacy of the retainer at regular follow-up appointments here at True Pediatric\Dentistry Center located conveniently right off Route 3 East on Broad St near Clifton Commons Mall!

Here are some tips on how best to take care of and maintain a the appliance:

  • Clean daily using lukewarm water and mild soap – this will help remove plaque build-up around edges and crevices where bacteria may accumulate.  Avoid using hot water/ chemicals as these could damage the material used. Also brush gently along wire parts!

  • Store the appliance safely – make sure the container provided stays clean and dry.  Use a soft cloth or towel to dry the case  before placing the retainer inside.  This way no dirt will be trapped inside the case during transport and between appointments.

  • Wear the device regularly – follow instructions given by the dentist regarding how often the appliance should be worn throughout the day (usually 12- 16 hours). This will ensure the achievement of desired results!
