    so basically ive lost my retainers..
    I got my retainers just at the end of june and I was told to wear them full time for the first 3 months, which I have been. everytime I eat or drink I take them out and either put them in a cupboard or in the bathroom.
    so last night I was just about to put my retainers in and I couldn't find them.. anywhere. its been a few hrs and I'm so scared that my teeth are going to move out of place... and I was only given a 2 week guarantee.

    but basically yeah..ik I put my retainers in the bathroom and I have a feeling someones either chucked them away by accident or they got flushed... :

    would I still have to pay for them? ik it wasn't my fault I do lookafter them .. I cant afford to get braces again!!

    they cost 70 pound each..

    lol ok I'm done now.

    You have to pay £70 for new ones. If you get benefits you may get a discount, just be more careful next time.

    Yep
    I've lost my retainers twice
    You'll have to pay for them
    If you're under 18 or still in full time education, I believe you only pay £30 (for each retainer)
    If you had two retainers, it would cost £60 all together.
    I'm not sure if the price has risen.
