4. Pain in Your Mouth
Your retainer's purpose is to ensure that your teeth don't continue to move or shift back into their original positions. If your orthodontic treatment has been successful, you shouldn't experience much residual movement that produces discomfort. However, if the pain continues, your orthodontist may prescribe other options.
The most important thing about removing your permanent retainer is that only an orthodontic professional should remove it to avoid damage to your teeth or the rest of your mouth. Your oral care professional will remove the bonding cement with a dental drill, ease the retainer away from your teeth, and clean and polish the teeth' surface.
Keep continual contact with your orthodontist and dentist and report any discomfort. With regular checkups, your dental professionals can prescribe the best treatment for your oral health, including removing your retainer when it's time.
