What Is A Bonded Lingual Retainer?

What Is A Bonded Lingual Retainer? A bonded lingual retainer is an orthodontic device that’s worn by a patient with an open bite. The retainer acts to close the gap between the upper and lower teeth, ensuring that food doesn’t get trapped between them and causing more serious oral health problems like tooth decay and gum disease. How does a bonded lingual retainer work? Bonded lingual retainers consist of two main parts – the plastic part that fits on the tongue side of the mouth, and the wire part that goes on the outside of the teeth.


How Long Do Bonded Retainers Last?


On average, bonded retainer last 2-5 years. It’s possible that they could break sooner or later than that, but they are fairly sturdy. However, if you don’t take care of them (if you do things like bite on them or pull on them) then it is possible for these devices to break earlier than anticipated. It’s important to treat your retainer just like any other part of your mouth: responsibly and with care.

What Are The Benefits Of Bonded Lingual Retainers?


If you’re not interested in wearing traditional metal or acrylic retainers, but are still looking for a way to fix your underbite problems, then a bonded lingual retainer might be just what you need. One of our patients once said that bonded lingual retainer was like wearing an invisible retainer. This type of appliance is placed inside your mouth, behind your teeth and is less obvious than other types of retainers—which makes it ideal for those who don’t want people to notice they are using one. It’s removable so you can eat, drink and speak without fear of having it fall out while engaging in these activities.


How To Care For A Bonded Retainer?


Most bonded retainers are made of acrylic. This can be cleaned with toothpaste, but should not be scrubbed hard against teeth and gums. If your bonded retainer starts to loose, start using a small amount of mouthwash on it to clean it more regularly. After meals, brush and floss your teeth as usual. However, you do not need to rinse after eating with a bonded retainer since food will not get stuck in it. It is still important to floss anyway because most people end up getting food stuck between their teeth and their gums, which can cause gum disease if left untreated for a long time or if you have weak gums already.. Also don’t forget about tongue scrapers which help remove bad breath causing bacteria that accumulate around your tongue!
