My retainer is broken! There is a big chunk out of it, and its the part that keeps 1 of my front teeth and the one beside it in place! My 2 teeth are starting to turn inwards so i took it out!..

Can anybody give me an estimate on how much a replacment retainer might cost?
I hope its not too expensive! Mom just paid 1600 dollars for A quebec trip that i am going on in April and i dont want her to keep speanding large amounts of money on me. I feel bad cause one of my friends told me it will probably cost like 500 dollars:eek::cry:

Plus, I dont wanna get yelled at:o As im going to get that "If you wore it more often when your supposed to" And the "You should be more responsible" lectures/. ick

Better to fess up to your mother, rather than waste all that expensive work. I lost a couple myself way back when; you're not the first.
It's custom work so not cheap. Probably a couple of hundred - just a guess.

awww babymomma that sucks.

hopefully it wont cost much but im with badger- just tell ure mom. accidents happen.

I do know that when my lil bro accidently sat on his retainers and they got all bent outta whack/no longer fit properly the dentist gave us a break on the replacemtn cost. He only charged us what the lab that makes them charges no extra on his side.

Retainers...ahhhhh...the good ole days! :yuck:

Another vote for fessing up...things will only get ugly if you don't.

As for price...gosh, it's been 100 years :frustrated: since I bought one so can't help on that...
