I wore them the whole day ..even to bed.. and i sucked on it all night so that it would touch the roof of my mouth.. when i woke up i found that the retainer...

I dont know but my orthodonist shaved my tooth in the front and i can feel the texture difference & it bothers me.
It was a little longer than the other tooth so i guess he did it to make it look the same as the other.

My face is much longer than it was.
I dont know if its because I lost weight, got braces or went through some kind of 20's puberty, lol.

I know someone who was supposed to have their braces on for a year and a half but got them off around the 7th month. Orthodontist really cant tell you how long you may have your braces on because they dont know how fast your teeth can move or problems they can run into which can delay the process. T...

most people that i know make impressions and get their braces off the same day.

I thought it was weird that I had to wait a week AFTER impressions.

but i think its that way because the orthodontist has to send off to get my retainers & he doesnt want my teeth to shift between the time.

One: Do they do the impressions exactly like they did before you got braces? Because they do it while still braced what can I expect? I just remember it sticking alot lol. I dunno, haven't had it done but I think so. Two: When you guys got your impressions how long after did they remove your braces?...
