So I was reading something yesterday at my appointment, and of course didn't get the time to discuss it with my Ortho and wanted some opinions from my fellow Archwired Addicts. In the retention area it said "lower 3x3 wire, upper Essix" Now two things, one I do not want a permanent retainer, at all. Never, never, never. Number two, because of my two spaces for implants, I want an upper Hawley with fake teeth. I'm also not interested in having to replace an Essix retainer every year, or whatever it is. Does it sound OK for me to go in and say "I don't think so" to everything she thought she was going to do? She is my new Ortho, so we haven't really had much time to talk, especially about retention, since we're dealing with the final tweaks and the Oral Surgeon stuff. I do try to be nice, but when someone tries to push stuff on me, after I've said no, I can be a real PAIN....since people tend to think short petite girls are push-overs. So what's the best approach? Since I have to pay $800 just for removal and retainers, I may as well get what I want right?
...once again I tried to use a big girl word, and it replaced it with "complain" so I changed it to PAIN, even though I can be a real B sometimes. Geez, can't even call myself a complain
