No matter how well you look after your retainer, there’s no preparing for unexpected damage or loss. Whether it’s leaving your retainer in a hotel room, or one of your four-legged friends turning it into their chew toy, even the most careful of us can find ourselves suddenly without a retainer. Your teeth are important, and waiting for a replacement retainer can be long enough to undo some of your dental work. Many of our customers find it beneficial to order two sets of retainers from us, or they already have a set of retainers and order a pair of backup dental retainers. We strongly recommend preparing for the worst and ordering a spare set now, rather than being caught out when life happens. We even offer your second set of retainers at a discount, as long as we still have your impression on file.
Why Get Backup Dental Retainers?
We give a 30% discount on getting an additional backup retainer set because we care about your smile.
Retainers are Fragile
A downside of Essix retainers is that they are fragile and can crack fairly easily. Proper care and maintenance can help to keep your retainer durable and extend its lifespan. Unexpected events can still easily result in cracks or breakages though. Don’t put your teeth at risk of shifting while you wait for a replacement to be delivered.
You may have paid thousands of dollars to have your teeth straightened. During the time when you’re looking for your old retainers or getting a replacement set, your teeth can shift. Having a spare set on hand is a cheap way of preserving your expensive dental work.
Think of a spare retainer as insurance for your smile. When something happens to your main retainer, you will always have a backup on hand ready to keep your teeth in place. For a backup Essix retainer at a fraction of the cost, visit SportingSmiles today.
Dogs love to eat retainers! We get 5-6 calls every week from customers saying that their dog ate their retainers. They are just irresistible to them. If your furry best friend turns your retainer into a chew toy, you’ll be glad you had a spare set.
Having clear retainers is great for making them virtually invisible while on your teeth. However, this feature makes them very easy to accidentally throw out. If your retainers seem to have magically disappeared, there’s a strong chance that they’ve been thrown out by accident.
If you are in a rush to get replacement retainers and have to go to a dentist it can cost anywhere from $300 – $600. For less than $100 you can get a replacement set from SportingSmiles.com, or even better get a spare set before anything goes wrong in the first place.
Having your teeth straightened is an expensive and sometimes painful process. It’s worth it though, to get the smile you always wanted. You want to make sure that your teeth stay as straight as possible. A set of backup dental retainers is a cheap way to ensure your teeth don’t shift back to their old position if anything unexpected happens to your retainers.
