i just finish two years of braces and i have been wearing my hawley retainers 24/7 for 6 months, but I'm feeling discomfort with my bite. it feels like the middle upper and lower teeth are touching too much. Just to let you know i double stacked my elastic bands( two on top of each other when i had to wear them during my last months of wearing braces. i told her about this and she said it wasn't a good idea. I wonder if this is why i'm feeling a bad bite.
