What Kind of Retainer After Braces is Better, Clear Plastic or Wire?

I wore braces 12 years ago when I lived in Florida. The orthodontist gave me a retainer after the work she did that looks sort of like an invisalign tray. I simply loved this retainer and it worked great but I lost it! After I moved to LA I went to get a new retainer but new orthodontist gave me a wire one, and I noticed it didn’t keep my teeth that straight even though they insisted it was better.

What is the best type of retainer please?
