I picked up my #retainer yesterday. Mixed feelings. Still overjoyed that my braces are off, but these might be more annoying than braces! They will definitely cut down unnecessary snacking more than my #braces EVER did. I have no chewing surface and I MUST brush after. Sigh. I get to wear them all the time for 2 months then just at night. They're pretty sore since I didn't have anything in for 4 days while they had them made- feels like I just had an adjustment. Oh well, all part of the plan! Love how my #smile looks though!!
