Can I Get Retainers Made by Another Orthodontist?
I've just lost my Hawley retainer. I've also just moved to the US after leaving my home country where I received my orthodontic treatment. I'd lost my retainer before, while still back home; not having it for a month moved my teeth enough that my ortho had to saw off 0.75mm off the sides of one tooth, so it would fit when the retainer pushed it back. I need a replacement retainer quick: can a different orthodontist here in the US fit me with one, or do I need to go back to my original ortho?
Jason...there are temporary retainers out there for you!
