With the introduction of Invisalign aligners, the narrative in getting orthodontic treatment has changed. The Invisalign clear aligner brand is fast becoming the preferred Invisalign brand because it offers comfort and convenience, plus it is effective in correcting most orthodontic issues.
The company that makes Invisalign also makes a trusted and comfortable retainer called Vivera retainer. Vivera retainers are transparent and removable. They are perfect for use after an Invisalign treatment. You can also use them to retain the teeth in their new position after any other orthodontic treatment.
Read on to know more about Vivera retainers and how they keep the teeth in their perfect position.
Why are retainers necessary?
After any orthodontic treatment, the teeth can still move back to their previous position, but a retainer will prevent this, by preserving the teeth in their new position. The relapse may take a while if you do not use a retainer, and your teeth may not completely move to their previous position, but the change is enough to take away your perfect smile.
Sometimes, the relapse may even be worse than how the teeth were before your orthodontic treatment. Using Vivera retainers will ensure your teeth continue to look perfect, and the retainers do not affect your appearance in anyway because they are invisible. Vivera retainers are made from the same material and using the same design as virtually invisible Invisalign aligners.

How long do I need retainers?
The duration of wearing aligners depends on several factors like the severity of the orthodontic problem treated and the age of the patient. Your orthodontist will draw out a plan for wearing retainers which would be suitable for you.
Generally, the duration of wearing retainers is as follows.
- 12 – 22 hours daily for the first 3 – 6 months after your orthodontic treatment.
- Only at night for 6 – 12 months after treatment
- 3 – 5 times each week a year after treatment
Using retainers will ensure that the time and resources spent during your orthodontic treatment do not get wasted.

What makes Vivera retainers unique?
Vivera retainers are an aesthetic retainer option. They are made from medical plastic material that does not get degraded after a long period. Most people prefer them to fixed retainers because they are comfortable.
You can take out your Vivera retainer at any time to eat, so you do not have to worry about food getting stuck in your retainers and staining them. You can get a Vivera retainer to wear only at night or the one for full-time use. Vivera retainers can also last a lifetime and remain effective in retaining the teeth in their perfect position.
The retainers are as unique as Invisalign aligners, and you can get new retainers at the same cost initially paid. Vivera retainers are also suitable for use after other orthodontic treatment besides Invisalign, so ask your orthodontist for Vivera retainers even if you did not use Invisalign.
