Should I remove permanent bottom retainer?
Simple as the title. I see no benefit to keeping them on tbh, well I mean maybe they'll not be straight after many years when I'm an old man but if I maintain proper oral posture that shouldn't happen right? I'm scheduling a routine checkup with my dentist for a cleaning and think it might be worth it to just see if they can take it off while I'm there.
