retainer's and new year's eve

if you're supose to wear your retainer night time only,then what about new year's eve? what will you do?

i was thinking to wear it during the day, leave it at home and then wear it the next day, will that be alright? i really don't wanna spend the night with essix in my mouth

Re: Dent and stain from overlapped teeth... Help!!

i don't think your ortho will do that, but he doesen't have too, you can go to any dentist to do it, it's also cheap and it takes about 10-15 minutes
