STRAIGHT TEETH – FOR A LIFETIME
Thanks to the patented CAD/CAM manufacturing process, MEMOTAIN® retainers are more precise than a handcrafted lingual retainer could ever be. It is possible to create even the smallest designs without bending the alloy. This ensures lower risk of damage or fracture of the material. Thanks to the specifically tailored transfer coping, fitting the retainer is child's play. MEMOTAIN® retainers ensure accurate positioning, especially in connection with the upper and lower jaw, and thus allow greater long-term wear comfort and reduce the risk of biting off the device. Moreover, the long-term, compliance-independent stabilisation of the position of the teeth results in fewer incidents of undesired tooth movement and consequently fewer follow-up treatment appointments. Maximum convenience for you and maximum comfort for your patients.
Memotain retainers are made using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) processes. Thanks to the innovative, patent-pending manufacturing process, MEMOTAIN® is made to fit and, with a thickness of 0.4 mm x 0.4 mm, is much thinner than conventional lingual retainers.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO ORDER MEMOTAIN?
The right time to order Memotain is during the last check-up appointment prior to debond. It is important to ensure that, between the time of taking the impression or scan and inserting the CAD/CAM retainer, no more movement takes place in the anterior tooth region. The CAD/CAM retainer is precisely fabricated on the basis of the model (or scan) provided by you.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE DELIVERY OF CAD/CAM RETAINERS?
The maximum time required for delivery of the CAD/CAM retainer is 10 working days following receipt of the impression or scan.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE AN IMPRESSION IF THE PATIENT IS STILL WEARING FIXED BRACES?
Yes, but only if the brackets are in a buccal and not a lingual position. For patients wearing lingual appliances we recommend the teeth are retained using a vacuum/thermoformed retainer post debond while the Memotain retainers are being produced.
I CAN’T TELL IF MY PATIENT’S BITE IS TOO DEEP AND SUITABLE FOR AN UPPER JAW RETAINER. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
If after inspecting the occlusion you are not sure whether an upper retainer is possible, tick the field “Review prior to manufacture” in the order form. In such cases, the team will advise if an upper retainer is possible.
