When you invest in your smile, you invest in yourself. Retainers are made to fix a variety of dental problems by setting your teeth in place, and they're necessary to keep your long-term smile looking great. They may be used after braces come off, or they may be used to correct bite problems or other common issues. If you're wondering how much retainers cost, learn more about the different options available and how much you'll need to spend.

Basic Budgeting

If you're wearing a retainer after you've had braces, it may be included in the cost of the braces. Otherwise, retainers cost about $450 for both the upper and lower set of teeth. If you only need one retainer, you'll pay about $225. Keep in mind that the exact amount you pay is dependent on the type of retainer you buy. If you're looking to correct a serious problem, such as a severe malocclusion, you may spend up to $2500 dollars

Types of Retainers

The more expensive retainers are typically made of either acrylic or clear plastic, both of which are extremely durable. This increases the longevity of the retainers as they are cleaned and worn each night. Essix retainers are extremely cheap (as low as $70 for a full set), but they're also much more likely to be damaged. In other words, you'll need to factor in more than just the retainers cost before making your decision.

Love, love, love the whole staff here! I am being treated for adult orthodontic surgical braces to correct my underbite.

We were in an emergent situation after a playground accident/trauma and within 10 mins of calling and upon arrival, we were greeted, evaluated, and treated immediately on our first visit.
