Clear Essix Retainers

An essix retainer is a clear retainer that fits over the whole tooth, similar to an Invisalign aligner. It’s clear and has no metal components.

Because it fits over the biting surface of the teeth, a patient can eventually wear through it, especially if they grind their teeth. Think of a pair of sneakers. Eventually, you can wear through the soles and may need to replace them.

These are very unforgiving retainers. If you don’t wear them and the teeth start to move, they are not adjustable and will not fit.
