Re: Braces off December 5th. QUESTION

I have both Hawley retainers. bottom was fine, but top I had problems with. After struggling with it for a week I went back and got it adjusted at orthos. Now its perfect, Im lucky my teeth didn't move on top as I hardly wore it that first week.

Re: What was the first thing everyone ate when they were off

I ate tootsie rolls, and bit of honey. I really wanted fresh sweet corn on the cob, but its out of season.

Hawley retainers feeling tight

Even though I wear my retainers as much as I can, sometimes they do feel tight when I put them back in. Just wondering if this in any way could hurt my teeth. As in- the teeth being in place, moving out of place, then retainers in and being moved back in place? Hope this makes sense.

Re: Hawley is uncomfortable

I have upper and lower Hawley. I haven't had any problems with the bottom but the top ones are taking some getting used to.

Re: Braces at 43

I was supposed to get braces off on Oct 9, ortho called today, they had cancellation, would I like to come in? YES. I love the results, although its going to take some getting used to the upper Hawley, good thing I don't have a gag reflex. So super excited- and no white spots either :tingrin:
