I had braces for a while, and then I stopped wearing my retainers before my ortho said I could. Great idea.

I tried popping them in last night. The top teeth are fine and the retainer fits and doesn't feel extremely tight, but the bottom row is another story. They've shifted and I can only get in a few sides/corners of the retainer at a time. If try to push in both sides, it really hurts and one ends up popping out.

I'm thinking about going back to the orthodontist, but I don't want to have them be like "omg you need total braces all over again." They are looking more and more crooked over time, but when I smile you can't really see my bottom teeth anyways.

What should I do? Should I go to the orthodontist, keep trying to cram my stupid retainer in, or just forget it all?
