Any of you guys who had braces or Invisalign decide to get a permanent retainer installed? Did you like having it? Did you hate it? What would be your pros and cons about it?

Yes! I didn’t love having them but had them for 3 years and used retainers every night. It’s fine !

Pros; your teeth look amazing afterwards
Cons: it’s uncomfortable sometimes, you gotta be extra careful when eating, and constant check ups with dentist.
Worth it, in my opinion

I had regular braces. I agree with @santaclariita pros and cons. But it is worth it.

I didn’t have a permanent retainer because I was worried about the upkeep afterwards. But i 100% regret it. My teeth shifted back after a few years even though I wore my retainer for a year and a half afterwards. Feels like a complete waste of money now

Have mine on 3 years and I genuinely forget I have them. Only thing was I was eating a chicken goujon before and a piece wedged under it so it bent but easily got it fixed by the dentist 😅 Otherwise they’re great!
