    Hi

    Permanent retainers or inner retainers are an easy option to prevent the teeth from moving back into their previous positions. 

    Retainers stabilize the teeth in the required or new positions after braces are removed.

    Inner fixed retainers are not visible when you smile or speak, do not interfere with chewing and are quite comfortable.

    You only need to brush your teeth twice daily, over the fixed retainers as well.

    Retainers may be priced from Rs 3600 to Rs 12000 per arch, with an average cost of Rs 6000 for bonded / fixed retainers.

    Treatment prices may vary based on the materials used.

    The best way to prevent further problems due to your erupting wisdom teeth would be to consult your dentist. 

    There are many reasons for teeth to move from their positions and the most common reason is Gum Disease.

    Only your dentist would be able to identify the cause and suggest the suitable treatment.
