New Dental Retainers
These days we know that retainers are for life, to keep teeth from gradually reverting.
What to do if your retainer doesn’t fit anymore
Its important to act quickly
Don’t delay. Time is of the essence. If you think your teeth are beginning to move and your retainer is mislaid or doesn’t fit, please don’t wait. Take immediate action, as the quicker you get to a dentist the better. The sooner things are sorted, the less time and money, probably, will need to be spent to get things back to the way they should be.
Please don’t feel embarrassed, it happens a lot.
If you have your retainer but it fits tightly
Don’t be shy, try and push it firmly into place. The teeth will start to move within 24 hours or so, but you may find that you can push them fully into place within a couple of days.
Happy Days! Keep them in for a couple of weeks, (remove only for cleaning and eating) and then continue to wear them every night after that.
If you have recently lost your retainers
Contact your friendly neighbourhood Orthodontic clinic to get you in asap for new impressions and new retainers – remember that every week the teeth move a little further in the wrong direction.
If your teeth have visibly moved
Don’t despair – teeth can ALWAYS be moved back to the correct position no matter what age you are or how long it has been since your orthodontics was completed. At Winning Smiles we have been treating relapsed orthodontic cases for nearly 20 years.
The good news is…
In most cases we do not need to enter back into full-on ‘brace-face’ orthodontics using train tracks and wires! Many cases can be treated with discreet removable aligners such as Inman and Invisalign or even ‘6 month smile’ system.
In cases where the teeth have moved a little further we can still treat you with discreet brackets bonded onto the back of the teeth so they can’t be seen, i.e. Lingual braces.
If you think you might benefit from seeing us, why not book a free consultation today and we can tell you
- How serious the relapse is
- How long it will take to fix
- How much it will cost and details of our monthly payment options
The Free Consultation
Without seeing things for ourselves, we can’t tell people what their options are.
And so with that in mind, we are happy to offer free consultations, as this is a big decision for most people. We are careful to take budget, comfort and appearance into account when explaining all the available choices and there is never any pressure to proceed, and certainly not on the day.
We set out to be a friendly practice and try to provide everybody with what’s right for them, at an affordable cost. We hope our dentist reviews give that impression.

What they say about us
Ruth – Don’t be scared of sedation!
DON’T BE SCARED OF SEDATION……..IT’S BRILLIANT….TRUST ME!!!
I came in for 4 hours sedation with your FANTASTIC sedationist Doctor Damian. It was recommended as I needed 10 upper crowns and surgery to even up my gum lines. This involved a very lengthy treatment, which thankfully I was not aware of. Amazingly I was told to eat and drink before treatment. The drug process to put me to sleep was not in the least bit traumatic. It only involved a tiny needle, with just one drop at a time of the drug. When I came round, I did not feel unwell in the least (just not quite with it). It was a totally stress free experience, and I recommend it to anyone undergoing lengthy/complex work.
Andrew is also doing a brilliant job, sorting out my general and cosmetic dentistry…..BEFORE AND AFTER his clever Dad Michael straightened them for me with Invisalign.
The girls are all great too, and I am SO lucky to have found the perfect team at Winning Smiles!
Gill – Adult Teeth Straightening
Having just finished my Invisalign treatment I feel I must write and thank the whole team at Winning Smiles.
Thinking at the age of 57 there was no way anything could be done for my crooked teeth. I thought I would enquire as my husband had undergone extensive implant work and the result was amazing and very successful.
I had attended an NHS dentist reqularly and thought my teeth must be in a reasonable condition, but after a consultation with Andrew I realised just how bad a condition they were in.
After a few appointments with Andrew and the Hygienist I was referred to ‘Andrew’s Dad’ Mr Fennell for my Invisalign treatment.
It has taken about 18months but the result is really great. The standard of care throughout was professional and friendly from all of the team.
I would thoroughly recommend Invisalign, you get used to wearing the aligners almost immediately and nobody even knows you are having treatment. I am more confident now when I smile than I have ever been!
Thank you Winning Smiles once again and I look forward to my next checkup!
