    Retainer Concerns

    I just got a Hawley retainer, and I am unable to close my mouth when I put it in. My lower teeth scrape against the upper retainer, so my molars don't touch. Also, the wire in front doesn't cover my teeth. It covers my gums. Is this normal, or should I speak with my orthodontist about getting a new one?

    Do you think I should continue to wear the retainer until I get an appointment, or is it possible that it will mess up my teeth?

    The above reads pretty abnormal to me.
