    Do not smell your retainer after not having cleaned it for a month. God, I was sitting here bored, just got up (I only wear my retainer at night) and I'm reading filburt's post. I use my tongue acrobats to remove my retainer from my mouth and then I'm holding it. Now for some reason I bring it up to my nose and take a whiff.

    :barf:

    I think I'll go clean it now.

    Actually I'm weird about smells on my fingers (!!). I'll touch something in the garbage my accident and then just out of curiousity i'll smell it. I'll practically heave it was so bad...but then I take another smell. I don't know why, but I always smell stuff at least twice..

    And actually bedrooms smell bad because people don't change their sheets often enough. I change mine pretty often so I've warded off that nasty, greasy smell.

    The retainer only reaks when it's wet. And then you have to be very close to it to smell it. When it's dry it's odorless. But it's obviously going to smell when it's covered in broken down materials from your mouth.

    a thing you put in your mouth after having braces on your teeth to keep them straight.

    The plastic thing that you put in your mouth to straighten your teeth. Not the permanent stuff like Braces. (The metal stuff that's always in.) Retainers can be removed when ever you want.

    Oh no! Jake is 2 fast 4 me! :run:

    I'm too cheap for effrident. I just rinse them every time i take them out and before i put them in. Normally I'll brush them with a spare toothbrush and toothpaste once a week.

    I have two by the way. One for upper, one for lower.

    If you ever want to prevent brain freeze when drinking a slurpee or something wear your top retainer so it covers your hard pallette.

    Lucky you. Those ones are easier to speak with. My speech is slurred with the ones that cover my pallette since my tongue doesn't have room to manoevre.

    Oh well, that's why I only wear them at night.

    well i mentioned this once b4, i first got the "appliance" when i was 10, it had a metal wire that scarred my tongue. then i got a top retainer (that i had to wear all day) and i never noticed a bad smell. then i got braces for 2 years (top and bottom), then i got a top retainer again and a bottom one (to wear all day). and for this one i reaaallllyyy noticed the smell. but you see, i brush mine everytime b4 putting it in my mouth. now i just have to wear em at night.
    and what the hell is brain freeze? when i drink slurpees 2 fast i just get a horrible pain in my throat.

    this instance of palette is spelled palate. this spelling is also used in decsribing tastes.

    That's not brainfreeze.

    Brainfreeze as far as I can tell is the really cold stuff being pressed against your palette. I guess the temperature causes the blood vessels up in the bottom part of the brain there to contract or something. All I know is that I don't get it when I don't press cold stuff against my palette.
