Picture this: you’ve finally bid farewell to your braces, but your journey towards that dreamy smile hasn’t ended just yet. Enter the retainer – your new companion designed to ensure your teeth remain in their new, improved positions while your gums adjust. Though tailor-made to your mouth, retainers might initially feel a bit awkward and discomforting.
Experiencing a bit of discomfort during the first few days, or even a week, of wearing your retainer is completely normal. There are simple ways to ease this temporary pain. However, if the discomfort lingers beyond a week, it’s time to give your orthodontist a ring.
