Is It Possible To Have A Bonded Retainer Fitted To The Rear Of My Top Set, With One Being A Crown?

Q.
Hi Andrew. Quick question for you – is it possible to have a permanent retainer fitted to rear of top teeth – one of which would be a crown? I feel my teeth are moving and before I go to dentist I wanted to check if this was in any way possible – I am scared to bite down on the front teeth – and it’s now affecting what I can and cannot eat? I should also point out that I have missing teeth – I basically have 10 top teeth with no gaps of which 5 are crowns. Any information would be great. Thank you for your time.

Hello and thank you for contacting me. It’s difficult to get a bonded retainer to fit a crown as it often de-bonds, you could try just a removable night time one instead to see if this helps. If you read up on this website’s pages regarding bonded retainers, it can help you understand more about the treatment before you seek a consultation with your dentist. Try to find a dentist who is suitably experienced at this type of procedure. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Dr Andrew Moore.
