The Bonded retainer, otherwise referred to as the fixed retainer is a permanent wire retainer that is bent according to the contours of the teeth and bonded to the lingual / palatal surface of the anterior teeth. It is designed to ensure that the post-treatment positions of the teeth are retained. Made using Flattened 8 strand braided wire, it has a lower profile than other leading brands and cuts easily without fraying.
Our bonded retainers come with a fabricated positioning jig. These are designed to assist the clinician and hold the wire in situ whilst the bonding cement is applied.
