  • I'd call my orthodontist and ask

  • call your dentist too. the new filling may just need to be buffed or filed down a bit where your retainer hits it. if you just have sorness around the gums when your retainer is in, id say get some orajel and rub there. good luck.

  • I doubt it'll hurt any to not wear the retainers for a day or two, til you're healed from the fillings.
