Fixed Lingual Retainer (FLR)
Fixed lingual retainers (FLR) are one of the simplest ways for your patients to maintain their newly aligned smile. It allows them to forget about caring for a removable retainer device, without affecting the visible esthetic of their smile. Because the FLR remains in the patient’s mouth permanently, they will experience little, if any, relapse; some level of relapse often occurs with removable devices because they aren’t always worn as recommended.
When ordering a FLR for your patient, please indicate the type of stainless steel wire you prefer, as well as whether you want optional mesh pads.
