Re: what are your RETAINER wear instructions

I have permanent retainers on the top and bottom, but I have an Essix for the top as well. I was told to wear the essix 24/7 for 6 months and then at night. I always wear it at night and sometimes during the day.

And they are off!! I had my braces taken off yesterday and I couldn't be happier with the results!! The whole process was totally painless, it didn't hurt at all when they were taking the brackets off or grinding away the cement. My least favorite part was probably when they were gluing the permanen...

I am now 9 days away from getting my braces taken off! It almost seems surreal, I thought I would be more excited then I really am. It feels like I am going in for another adjustment and not my actual de-brace date. I am sure I will feel different next week though, maybe it is a good thing I'm not t...

My estimated time was 1 year, I got my debanding date at my last appointment, so I will be getting them off after 17 months. I will have gone over my estimated time by about 5 months.

I thought the same thing as you, I thought that once I got braces no one would want to date me. Almost a year into braces I met someone and we have been together ever since! I am going to be getting my braces off soon and he thinks it will be strange once I don't have them since he has only known me...

I think I noticed changes after a month or so. And in my experience my teeth did get worse before they got better.
