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.

So throughout the years my fixed retainer on the bottom has broken several different times. Tonight it broke again. I was told as long as I wear my removable retainers nightly I wouldn’t need the fixed retainer, but my question is, will my removable retainer fit differently now that the fixed wire is broken off and will I have to get a new removable retainer made to fit my teeth without the fixed retainer? Or will the removable retainer still fit good enough?
I guess it depends what kind of removable retainer you have. I have hawley retainers both top and bottom and permanent retainers. The hawley retainers have extra space built in for my permanent retainers so I am not sure if they would hold my teeth firmly in place enough.
