If you have finished with your orthodontic treatment and are wearing retainers (or will be soon), this is a special place to connect with others in your (enviable) situation. Ask a question or make a comment about life post-braces.

Hi, can anybody tell me if I'm supposed to have a quite large gap between my top and bottom teeth with essix retainers? I have only gotten the retainers today, so I was ensure whether this was normal or not, but it is so uncomfortable and I am incapable of closing my mouth fully.
Essix retainers and some Hawleys don't let the teeth touch. It's the way they are. You're fine.
