Please discuss a removable clear retainers for your uppers. You can wear those at night time when sleeping. This way you are ensured that your teeth will not move.All the best,
There are many kinds of retainers out there, and one CAN do anything. The question is need. Did you have a large gap before braces? If the upper teeth weren't very crooked, a bonded wire is overkill. Some bonded wires are thicker than others, so some bites will break them off. They ARE more problematic, but are done quite often. If you REALLY want one and your orthodontist doesn't do them, someone else will. It likely isn't worth the time, money, and effort, but you can have whatever you want.Keeping them clean and preventing decay is a major challenge.
