Ditch Spending The BIG Bucks On New Retainers

*I received a complimentary retainer kit from JustRetainers in order to facilitate this post. No other compensation was received.

Five years ago my oldest daughter Samantha had her braces taken off. She was beyond excited to get those metal bars of torture off of her teeth. The braces had done their job, and her smile was beautiful. Here she is the day after they came off.

At the time when she had her braces removed, the orthodontist gave her a pair of retainers to use at night in order to “retain” the perfect shape of her teeth. He said that at some point in the future they would need to be remade since most retainers are not meant to last.

I nodded  my “hmm-hmms” and happily walked out the door with my braces-free daughter AND my braces payment-free life. Dang are those things expensive, right?!

Now, flash forward 5 years to the future, and guess what? Her retainers are wearing out with small little holes developing in some areas. Ugh!

Unfortunately, a quick call to her old orthodontist revealed that he had relocated to another state, and  so we would need to make new molds since the old ones were not in the new orthodontist’s possession. Which meant loads more money spent. So being the thrifty cheap mama that I am, I went scouring the internet to see what deals for retainers were to be found. Miracle of miracles, I stumbled upon JustRetainers, and the rest of this story is absolute Kismet!

Once I had signed up online, JustRetainers mailed me out a package containing all of the materials we would need to make the retainer molds at home. They even sent a couple extra packets of the mold materials in case we might need a few attempts.

After reading over the directions on their website, and watching quite a view videos on their site about how to do the molds, we made our molds. That was pretty easy too!

After we were done, we took a quick picture of our molds to email to JustRetainers in order to verify they were done correctly. Once verified, they emailed me a return mailing label, and then we shipped those bad boys off. We received the brand new retainers in about a week. Plus a 3D mold of her teeth that we could keep forever in case anything ever happens to the retainers. It was all pretty smooth!

Sam and I seriously could not be more pleased. She says these retainers feel better and sturdier than her old pair.

  1. I know my younger daughter is going to need braces. So, I am definitely keeping this in mind for her when we cross that bridge. Thanks so much, Jen for sharing here :)

  2. I think my favorite part is that you can do your own molds! Man I was not a fan of that. And now Scarlet has gone through it and my wallet hates me.
    Thank you, as always. I have three family members who will need this.

  3. Hi Jen, your post has got me thinking. My two wore braces that cost us the price of a small (second hand) car, but were never given anything to hold their teeth in place once the braces were removed! I never even realised that there were such things. Oh dear, I expect their teeth are wonkier than ever. I’m too scared to look now!

      That is interesting. I wonder if retainers are kind of just a state-side thing? My daughter’s ortho practically threw the expensive ones at us right as they took off the metal braces, and there we were thinking we were done with it all. I bet they are just fine, but hey, grab a retainer now if you can :)
