How Long Do You Have To Wear Your Vivera Retainer?

Woman with Retainer in the Case Marietta GA

After undergoing our Marietta, Ga Invisalign treatment to straighten your teeth and fix your bite, you’ll need to wear a retainer.  Doing so will help ensure that your teeth don’t shift back resulting in a relapse, which means that you need to go through Invisalign again. Our Vivera retainer is a clear plastic tray that looks just like your Invisalign aligners.

Wearing Your Retainer
To begin with, after your Invisalign treatment is over, you may be instructed to wear your retainer all the time.  After a while you should be able to transition to only wearing the trays while you sleep. Long term users can still benefit from straight teeth by inserting their retainer a few nights a week.

Avoid Relapse With a Vivera Retainer
One of the great things about Vivera retainers is that they’re actually capable of moving your teeth back into place if they have begun to shift. But be careful not to overdo it because the movement is limited to .25mm per tooth. It’s best to wear your retainer as instructed and not risk having to go through ortho again.

How To Clean Your Vivera Retainer 
Cleaning your Vivera retainer is just as important as it is easy to do. Simply brush the inside and outside of each tray that you normally would your Invisalign aligners.

Before inserting your retainers, make sure that your teeth are clean so that you avoid bacteria getting trapped underneath, causing dental decay.

  • We are beyond thankful for Dr. Kincer and his team!! Dr. Kincer is one of the most honest and conservative Orthodontist, which is a VERY rare find in the industry. We moved to south Florida about halfway through our treatment of 18 months and did not switch orthodontists; that’s how much Dr. Kincer means to us! Our daughter’s smile is absolutely beautiful!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the BEST at what he does!!! Both of my girls have been under Dr. Kincer's care, with exceptional results. They both began treatment at age 8, because of their tiny mouths that required Phase I and Phase II treatments. As a result of his recommended treatment plan, our girls will have exceptional teeth for life. Our family is incredibly thankful for Dr. Kincer's meticulous care that resulted in BEAUTIFUL smiles!!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the best. I am almost a year into my treatment and i have nothing but great things to say. He is so kind and his team is amazing. They are simply amazing and truly care for what their customers need and what their teeth need. I highly recommend Doctor Kincer to anyone looking for orthodontics.

  • Excellent orthodontist. Invisalign was the best money I ever spent on myself. Dr. Kincer is meticulous, thorough, has attention to detail, and fixed my flared teeth. Everyone is always complimenting my smile. He is always timely, professional, and his support staff (Jennifer and Lynn) are really caring. He is able to shave down teeth to make them aesthetically fit my smile and proportions. Dr. Kincer and Lynn really make sure their patients are comfortable-- especially when it comes down to removing attachments for invisalign and IPR, when your teeth are already sensitive. I recommended him to my brother and little cousin for orthodontic work and for their retainers :)

  • Our family has been using Dr. Kincer for the past 10 years. Our oldest daughter has had amazing transformations with her treatment and our second is shaping up to do the same. Couldn't ask for a better, more friendly place.
