So there were a couple pics on the other page but here are some better up close ones...
I have a retainer with a wire across the front for one main reason...I'm missing my upper right lateral. The retainer has
a prosthetic tooth and I will be wearing it for at least 3 months, and probably May when I can actually get back to the orthodonist,
to get a partial until I can get an implant, which probably will not be this summer because I am planning on taking summer
classes. I was kind of upset when I got the retainer that had a wire across the front because I had been wearing a temporary
clear retainer, no wire, for the past few weeks before the permanent retainer was ready and I was liking my completely metal
free smile, but alas it's a small sacrifice and barely noticeable compared to the braces. You can actually see teeth. :-D
