    Oh, it was just a supermarket brand equivalent of Efferdent. Sorry, don't know what the Oz equivalent would be. But I remembered that Efferdent seemed to be the preferred cleaner for the newer...

    My ortho said about 18 months per retainer. I hope it's longer than 10 months!

    I'm at 6+ months of full(-ish) time wear, and I STILL don't feel ready to move to night time only wear. Every time I...

    How long do the Essix's last for? My ortho says I can get at least a year out of each Vivera (probably more like 18 months) even though Vivera says that they last 3 months. Anyway, my thinking was...

    The two times I had my attachments removed, my teeth were lovely and shiny and polished afterwards. The ortho had me run my tongue over my teeth to double check, and smoothed off any roughness. One...

    Update: I have to stick with full time wear a bit longer. I have one tooth that has intruded a bit. I went back to the ortho about a month into retainer wear, and he put a dimple in the tray to try...

    Ow!

    Use wax! I used tons of it with my first few trays. My ortho gives it out for free. If you're close enough to be able to pop to their office, you could call them and see if they can give you...

    Yeah, it's all a bit different provider-to-provider, so it really does depend on what's in the contract.

    I remember I paid $500 up front for retainers at the start of treatment. I ended up...

    You know, it's weird, sometimes I can leave the retainer out for 3 hours and feel nothing. And then this morning I left it out for 2 hours over breakfast (needed that second cup of coffee!), and it...
  12. Coming to the end of full time retainer wear!

    I just wanted to post a quick update. It's been nearly 4 months since I got my Vivera, and I am beginning the transition out of full time wear. My ortho said to wear full time for 4 months, and I go...

    When I had attachments over the front teeth, the best way I found to take them off was to reach in with my right hand and grasp the aligner at the back left teeth. I pull down, then peel to the right...

    Yeah, but there's still a period of full time wear even with retainers. I am STILL waiting to be on night time only wear! Although, at least I only have Vivera for the top, and only dealing with one...

    I forget - how long did you wear the Vivera retainer full time? My ortho told me that 4 months of full-time retainer wear is "by the book" and what they recommend, but I'm an adult so I could make my...
