Are you supposed to be able to bite down correctly while wearing an essix. Something on my right side is hitting first and making my bite feel weird. But, when I take out the retainer my bite is normal and fine. Can people have the essix shaved?

Also, when I put the retainer on It fills up with blood ( sorry gross I know) and seriously looks like I just ate someone. Has this happened to anyone? My gums are very irritated from debonding.

Oh and since I haven't said it yet.... I GOT MY BRACES OFF :D :D :D :D .

I'm not sure, but I wanted to say CONGRATS! You haven't even had your braces on for a year! LUCKY!
