Last week my dog chewed up my retainers. This morning I was supposed to go to the orthodontist to get new impressions done for new retainers. I managed to find my old retainers and had been wearing the bottom ones that fit over the weekend. The top retainer needed to be cut here and there to attempt to make it fit, and I thought I'd let the orthodontist do it because he's a professional. That was until I found out they wanted $35 just for me to come in to the office, and between $85 and $150 if I needed a new retainer. I spent the morning with an exacto knife and the retainer and managed to make it fit just fine. Wearing them all day was like going to the dentist.. my mouth hurts!!!
