    Got braces off about 6 weeks ago, and I've already managed to snap the top retainer into two 😥
    I don't think I mistreated it, it broke when I was cleaning it, although I do clench my jaw in my sleep and when awake which I think probably weakened the thing.
    When I go back to the ortho (either for a check up in about a month or sooner) am I going to be getting charged for a new one?

    i think you will. i told them mine had broken and they asked if i wanted new ones and that they would be £80 (each i think, but not sure) so i said no and they said 'ok we'll discharge you then' so that was a fun day and my bottom row have gone back to how they used to be now :/
