I barely eat after putting permanent retainers

I barely eat after putting permanent retainers

#1 Post by mitkotatarov » Tue Oct 17, 2017 7:37 am

Hey!
Today I put permanent retainers on my top line, but it hurts a lot when eating- my bottom teeth hit my top one and it's making eating a nightmare for me.
Will this continue ? Thanks. :(

this is why our ortho won't put permanent retainer wire on top.
I'd call your ortho to discuss other option.

My ortho insisted on putting permanent top and bottom but I refused. That was over a year ago and have no signs of relapse. If I were you, I would call your ortho and get it off.
