This is why I had my traintracks out after a month... I used to have a constant disgusting taste. Turned out to be a plaque build up I couldn't deal with behind the plastic bit on the top of my brace, which I couldn't remove at all.

Anyway, it'll just be something like that. At least you can remove the retainer.

ive had my retainer since year 10 and now ive just finished year 13! i cant get away from it, i mnust be addicted haha since im so scared of getting bad teeth (even that before braces mine weren't even that bad lol) but still i think the taste etc is definitly worth it.
When ive worn the thing at night, i soak it all throughout the day with steredents in really hot water.... then at night before i go to bed... i brush my teeth, brush my retainers, mouthwash, and maybe splash it on retainers lol, rinse and put them on a strange ritual but its hard to stop i might be an obsessive lol. but the taste isnt that bad in the morning... its just like normal morning breath, but as soon as i wake up i do the whole thing again straight away!
(when i sleep out at a friends etc i dont wear it!)

Basically the saliva that is trapped in the retainer congeals overnight and then 'goes off'. Apparently this is normal. Although I agree it sounds and tastes awful!

Smart but I would be careful using really hot water, that's why my ortho said not to use hot water if it's too hot she said the retainer can actually melt. It *is* only plastic after all.
