Orthodontic Appliances and Retainers

Orthodontic work is used to move or hold teeth in the current position, correcting the improperly positioned teeth and jaw. Pindan Dental Laboratory can help you and your patient achieve the best possible outcome with our highly customizable orthodontic retainers and maintainers.

Orthodontists order orthodontic products to help their patients treat overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites, teeth spacing, teeth crowding, or a misplaced midline. As each patient comes with a unique issue, orthodontic treatment has to be carefully planned and tailored to their needs. For this reason, there are several types of appliances designed to treat specific cases.

At Pindan Dental Laboratory, we use laboratory material fabrication that is completed to TÜV ISO 13485:2003. We work in ISO certified and FDA approved facilities, all with the aim to deliver the highest quality orthodontic products for your patients.

We are located in Chicago but we service our clients who need an orthodontic retainer across the US. We employ highly experienced technicians who continually advance their skillset and knowledge to maximize the quality of the product we sent out to you. Our orthodontic appliances are provided on an insured basis and we are at your service for any additional requirements through the treatment.

Our Orthodontic Products

Depending on an individual case that needs to be treated, a dental professional may opt for a specific type of orthodontic retainer. Some of the most popular orthodontic products at Pindan Dental Clinic include:

  1. Hawley retainer – A plastic plate that curves to the roof of the mouth which cannot be visible from the front. It is usually prescribed after the patient has already worn braces to keep the teeth aligned. The retainer is easily adjustable to fit the patient’s mouth and can offer high levels of comfort. They are durable but should anything happen, a Hawley retainer can be repaired.
  2. Begg retainer – Like Hawley retainer, it is prescribed to patients who have just removed their braces. It is designed to maintain teeth alignment and as such benefits the braces treatment. It is made from acrylics and the wire that wraps around the front teeth. It can be easily removed and cleaned and is more rigid in comparison to other retainer solutions.
  3. Space maintainer – Can be made either of acrylic or metal, and can be either removable or fixed. They are commonly prescribed for children who lose their primary teeth early and risk teeth misalignment. This particular orthodontic product is created to keep the space open for the permanent tooth to come into place. A space maintainer can in some cases help prevent orthodontic treatment.
  4. Lingual retainer – This orthodontic retainer is used to maintain the proper position of the anterior teeth. They are usually made of stainless steel to form a wire that connects the back surfaces of the anterior teeth. Like other types of retainers, it is used to benefit the results of the previous orthodontic treatment and maintain proper alignment.
