    I got my braces off back in October and was wondering do you keep the same retainer forever or do you eventually get another one ?

    You go for regular check ups and every once in a while they give you a new retainer .

    If you are really desperate for a new retainer you can pay for one

    No you don't. I got my braces off a few years ago and still have the same one. You probably could pay for a new one but it's the same one forever otherwise

    I think you do have to same one, but as long as you keep it clean then it should be fine. You can go back and pay for a new one if it gets broken or something tho... that’s how my orthodontist works anyway

    Yeah you pretty much do. The only reason you’d get a new one is if your old one broke, wasn’t taken care of or if your teeth slightly shifted and it didn’t fit anymore.
