have a retainer had it since I was 18 the reason I have had it for so Long is because I have two fake teeth on each side of my main front teeth. I can't get implants because of the way my roots are going. I could get a retainer with out the bar, but unfortunately I don't have the money to do that I would run me around 500$ I'm getting married in June and all my money is going towards that right now I would love to not have it for my pictures it makes me sad I'm 30 years old and hate the bar on it so much. I get asked question all the time. Anyways I was just wondering what would happen if I clipped the bar off of it would it fall out of my mouth and if it would and I still clipped it off if u use some type of denture stuff would that help hold it in place?! I have had it for so long I would think my teeth would shift or move I'm just wondering what would happen it I clipped off the bar it dose not have any kind of bracket on the sides like some have it's just the clear piece on the roof of my mouth and the wire those goes over the front of my teeth. I don't have a dentist or anything right now due to my inc. just looking for some advice thank you!

  • without seeing the case clinically it is difficult to give any advice.From your discription it seems you are wearing removable type of retainer.Does it have the missing teeth or not is not clear. If you clip the wire then it will not act as a retainer and once the wire is clipped it can not be attached back.. If it has teeth also then after clipping the front wire it will act as the removable denture. For more info on retainers you can visit the following link on our website...
