We have many customers that order 2 sets of retainers from us, or already have a set of retainers and are looking for a spare\backup pair. We recommend this for anyone that has retainers.
Here are a couple reasons why:
- Reorder Second Pair: We give about a 30% discount on getting an additional set.
- Retainers are fragile: A downside of essix retainers is that they are fragile and can crack. Instead of having to be in a rush to get a new set. It’s nice to have a second available.
- Cheap insurance: You may have paid thousands of dollars to have your teeth straighten. During the time when you’re looking for your old retainers or getting a replacement your teeth can shift.
- Dogs: Dogs love to eat retainers. We get 5-6 calls every week saying the dog ate their retainers. It would be nice to have a spare pair in case this happens to you.
- Clear: Having clear retainers is great for making them virtually invisible while on your teeth, but this feature makes them easily accidently thrown out.
- Cost: If you are in a rush to get replacement retainers and have to go to a dentist it can cost $300 – $600. For less than $100 you can get a replacement set from SportingSmiles.com
Having your teeth straightened is an expensive and painful process. You want to make sure that your teeth stay as straight as possible and a set of backup retainers is a cheap way to insure your teeth don’t shift back to their old location if anything happens to your retainers.
