    Is she a piper?....has she tried it?...if not, sorry,..,respectfully, she’s flat out wrong.

    Early in this thread I mentioned I’ve used my post braces ‘retainer’ on and off as needed during some subsequent dental work involving a new front cap.
    Given the very thin and conforming nature of the ‘retainer’ it worked perfectly with no inconvenience or discomfort...and it’s discretely removable for post event refreshments.
    After all,..a retainer is not a Goalie’s mouth guard.

      If the retainer is the invasalign style then I agree with you. If it is the traditional wire kind, then I agree with the dentist.
      You don't have fun by winning. You win by having fun.

        Yes...use of a custom molded ‘retainer’ ( sturdy thin ‘invisi-line’ like ) follows the removal of the wiring. Wearing retainers each night helps ‘retain’ the position the teeth have been moved (in)to over whatever long treatment period of time.
