Essix Retainers: Bite problems?

#1 Postby Shannonl98 » Thu Aug 24, 2017 6:53 am

Hi, can anybody tell me if I'm supposed to have a quite large gap between my top and bottom teeth with essix retainers? I have only gotten the retainers today, so I was ensure whether this was normal or not, but it is so uncomfortable and I am incapable of closing my mouth fully.

Essix retainers and some Hawleys don't let the teeth touch. It's the way they are. You're fine. :-)
