OLP offers several types of active and passive retainer designs. We take pride in the quality of our wire bending, acrylic finishing and overall fit of our retainers. We offer a full selection of acrylic colors, designs and decals.
OLP clear retainer material is ultra clear, strong, durable, and stain resistant. The acrylic is heat-molded directly to the model with a vacuum forming pressure machine. The arch is cut from below the gingival margins on the anterior and posterior teeth. The palate can be trimmed with full distal extension or reduced to a horseshoe.
We offer a wide variety of Forestadent Expansion Screws in our orthodontic appliances to help aid in the arch development of a patient. Depending on what application is necessary, our variety of expanders can assist you in achieving correction for cross-bites, anterior/posterior crowding, and increasing the arch width and length.
The fixed habit appliances are used for correcting both tongue thrust and thumb sucking habits. A variety of appliance designs can be used for habit correction. In some cases, persistent habits may require a more aggressive appliance design such as small prongs or spikes to act as a deterrent to correct the habit.
