hey /fit/ so i got my braces off like a year and a half ago and i was given 2 types of retainers. one is glued in my mouth and 1 to wear at night. im a lazy shit and didnt wear the ones at so my back teeth have shifted a bit (idk why the fuck she didnt just glue ones on to the back but only to the front but w/e)
if i start wearing my retainers again will my back teeth shift back? cuz they still fit but you can tell the back ones are off and they hurt like shit, the same pain/pressure id get from them tightening my braces every month, so does that mean its doing work?
pic related, type of braces i got

Yeah. Duh. Jesus, how fucking stupid are you?
Nevermind, you're stupid as fuck, because you stopped wearing your retainer.
Seriously, how fucking hard is it? Just pop the goddamn thing in before you go to bed, and give it a brush in the morning. Done.
Holy shit, if you can't even accomplish that on the regular, what the everloving fuck are you doing on /fit/? You should go crawl in a hole and pity yourself until you starve to death. You literally can't do the most minimal regular activity to maintain your appearance.
Furthermore, you show a complete lack of respect for the effort and money put into your goddamn mouth. I bet mommy and daddy paid for your straight teeth, huh?
Yeah your teeth will move back eventually. As long as it still fits it will move your teeth back to where were when you got it fitted. I've got the same situation as you have a permanent retainer on the back of my upper front 4 teeth and a plastic retainer to keep the rest of my upper teeth in place.
No, but I dumped a woman partly because her teeth were so bad. She had braces as a teen, and was just too fucking lazy to use her damn retainer.
She was great, but every time she smiled I winced. I take great care of my teeth, and the fact she couldn't be bothered to be consistent in the *smallest possible way* was a clear insight to her personality.
heres a pic of my teeth, i honestly don't think the orthodontist did a good job tho. bottom front still looks crooked to me and ik its not my no retainers fault cuz 1. it has a metal one glued on it 2. its been like that from the start. the back only moved a bit
I have custom made molds from... DirectWhite or something like that. They were, I dunno, like $70 and have lasted for years.
Just get the custom molds and order some carbamide peroxide. IRC, carbamide peroxide turns to hydrogen peroxide when in contact with saliva. They'll list retarded numbers like 60%, but in reality they're never more than something like 6% hydrogen peroxide equivalency.
They'll make your teeth sensitive, particularly after several successive days using it. But the sensitivity goes away about a week after you stop bleaching.
>tfw haven't worn retainer for about a year, no longer fits
>gap in front teeth
How fucked am I /fit/?
The bleaching lasts as long as you want it to. I got most of my value from two weeks of once per day.
As for the retainer, the stuff I used couldn't be on your teeth longer than half an hour. I never used any overnight stuff.
Honestly, I don't know how anyone could stand an overnight one. The stuff turns to hydrogen peroxide and inevitably gets around in your mouth. It tastes gross and you'd end up swallowing some if you used it at night.
Lol that looks like shit my man. Probably a big improvement from before but I'm nearing the end of my braces (at 2 years now) and my teeth look perfectly in line with one another.
