Can you get a permanent top retainer?

So when my Braces came off my Orthodontist told me I'd be able to recieve a Permanent Retainer on the bottom. I asked him about the top one and was told they don't do that. Am I being ripped off or something? They apparently know how to do bottom ones, why not the top?

Both top and bottom retainers are necessary to hold the teeth in position. Please note that without retainers your teeth are at a high risk of moving and shifting.All the best,
