Vivera® retainers are clear aligners that are to be worn either after getting your teeth straightened either from traditional braces or Invisalign™ treatment. These aligners are meant to prevent your teeth from shifting following teeth straightening treatment. With these retainers, you will be given specific instructions on when to wear them, specifically at night or during the day for a few hours.
Vivera® retainers are made using 3D imaging and Invisalign™ manufacturing technology for a tight and precise fit. This is the only retainer where no traditional impressions are needed to fabricate them.
Especially after getting teeth straightening treatment through standard braces or state-of-the-art Invisalign™ procedures, straight teeth can gradually become crooked again, shifting back to their original position, without the use of retainers. Scientific studies show this is common across orthodontic treatments, but it’s easily avoidable if you follow proper aftercare.
Wearing Vivera® retainers after your orthopedic procedure means you’re keeping your beautiful smile just the way it is — preventing teeth from reverting to their old position and protecting your investment and your smile.
Vivera® retainers are made especially for you, coming custom with the same state-of-the-art advanced technology that we use to make Invisalign™ aligners. After one of our expert Manhattan dentists takes a scan of your teeth, we design a retainer with a precise and more comfortable fit.
What’s more, Vivera®‘s default material is 30% stronger than leading dental retainers, meaning they’ll keep maintaining your teeth in the desired position for longer, reducing the risk of the retainer breaking or cracking. They also do not affect your speech, so you can comfortably wear them during the day and at night. Other advantages of Vivera® retainers include:
Lab tests have concluded that many leading clear thermoplastic retainers begin to deform and crack after as little as 2 months of normal use. Fresh, strong retainers are given every few months – keeping patients in working retention.
Vivera® retainers are proven to be 30% more durable compared to other clear retainers.
The superior strength of Vivera® retainers allows them to self-correct back to the final retain position certain types of relapses that may occur during the retention period, up to 0.25 millimeters per tooth.
Vivera® retainers support the use of bonded lingual wires for both upper and arches and provide an interim cosmetic solution for missing teeth.
