Are Vivera retainers included with Invisalign?
You can buy Vivera retainers through your dentist. Many people opt for these Invisalign retainers after Invisalign treatment, but you can also get a Vivera retainer even if you had regular braces.
How long will Vivera retainers last?
Removable retainers will also wear over time. The Vivera retainers usually last longer than standard removable retainers because the material has been developed to be more durable and wear-resistant. We order the Vivera Invisalign retainers in threes, and you can expect these to last you roughly 10 years.

With Vivera retainers, you get four sets of retainers, so you’re always ready with a backup. How long will I have to wear my Vivera retainers?
What do Vivera retainers look like?

What is the difference between Vivera retainers and Invisalign retainers?

Are Vivera retainers good?
Vivera™ retainers are 30\% more durable than other clear retainers. If they are well-cared for, kept clean, and stored properly when not in use, a set can last for several years. Be sure to clean thoroughly after use and store when not wearing, to make sure your retainer works properly for as long as possible.
Are Vivera retainers thinner than Invisalign?
They are thicker than Invisalign aligners, because they are designed for long-term use: a single set can last for several years when cared for properly. Vivera™ retainers are sparklingly clear, easy to clean, and come in a set with multiple back-ups, so you can trade them out when they stretch, break, or get lost.
How often should I change my Vivera retainers?
approximately every 3 months
If your patient is put into full-time wear, each Vivera retainer should be replaced approximately every 3 months. Alternatively, if the patient is placed into nighttime wear only, each Vivera retainer can be expected to provide effective working retention for a much longer time—an average of 9 months.

What type of retainers should I use after Invisalign?
There are multiple forms of retainers, but the Invisalign Vivera™ retainer is traditionally used after Invisalign treatment.

Can Invisalign be used as a retainer?
Invisalign Aligners can be used as retainers once the alignment is corrected. For many patients, a nigh time wear of the last aligner can be sufficient for a number of years. For others, especially those who clench their teeth at night, a more sturdy retainer will be necessary.
