I had a unfortunate event that has happened to me. A few months ago my permanent retainer broke off the bottom row of my teeth. I saved the retainer and went to my dentist here in Orem so he could reattach it to my teeth. Well, he thought it would be better if he created his own retainer and stuck that to my teeth. Over the past couple of months my teeth have been hurting and have noticed they've been moving. I made an appointment with my orthodontist in Bountiful so he can check out to see what's going on with my teeth. First, he told me that my dentist is an idiot, and second that the retainer he put on my teeth has completely moved all of my teeth on the bottom. He told me that he's going to put me in a retainer and then if that doesn't work then, braces are going to be my best friend for the next 6-7 months. I couldn't believe this. This is one of my worst nightmares. I sometimes have dreams that I have no teeth or that they're all messed up. I wake up feeling stressed and upset. I guess this nightmare has come true. I haven't had braces since 9th grade and remembering having to wear 5 rubber bands on my teeth at a time brings back memories of unpleasantness. P.S if you live in Orem, make sure you don't go to Dr. Keith Dodge.
