Holly in FL Posted December 9, 2011 Share Posted December 9, 2011 My son got his braces off this past Monday. He got retainers right away...the clear, plastic, molded type...not the one with the metal bar. Anyhoo...today he had a dentist/cleaning appointment and the doc repaired a slight chip in one of the front teeth. We had the retainer with us...my son tried it on...and, the doc said it looked just fine. Well, tonight when my son went to put it in...he can't push it up as far as it should go. Ugh!! It almost slips off with very little force. Also, he thinks his teeth are starting to hurt a little with this off-fit. Sigh... I'm going to call the ortho tomorrow morning. However, I'm wondering if it's okay that he doesn't wear it tonight? We certainly don't want to do any "damage" with an ill-fitting retainer. I don't want to call the doc because the answering machine specifically states paging the doc for emergencies only. I don't think this is an emergency. Thanks! ~Holly Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
