I grind my teeth in my sleep and I have bit my plastic clear retainer (I had my braces removed and got a retainer) and it has got 2 huge cracks that could snap the thing in two. My orthodontist said it would cost 42 pounds for a replacement and I don't have that much and my mum said if I break it I have to pay. I'm really scared as has anyone else had this happen?xx thanks

Hmm, my ortho only charges £20 for a replacement. I suggest you pay and get a new one asap. You wouldn't want your teeth to start moving after all the hard work of fixing them. If you don't have the money, ask your Mum to pay and offer to do some chores to pay it off. Or promise to pay her back when you have the money?
