Spring Retainers

SPRING RETAINERSIdeal for minor orthodontic corrections

Designed for correcting minor incisor irregularities such as rotations, tipping and crowding, Excel spring retainers stretch around the irregular teeth, coaxing them into the desired position. The appliance is also used for passive post-orthodontic retention when severe rotations have been corrected.

Use and benefits
Worn full time, spring retainers can improve the position of slightly crowded teeth by applying gentle pressure. Even if the patient stops wearing the retainer for a period of time and the incisors move, the appliance usually has enough flexibility to reseat and continue the correction.

Customizing options
On request, our technicians will reduce the interproximal contacts of selected incisors to create sufficient space when constructing the set-up, or introduce over-corrections for additional force. See color chart.
