    How Do You Get your Splint off your teeth?

    I was given a small plastic retainer retreiver that is just about broken. What do you guys use? i can't pry it off with my hands, it's stuck.

    Re: How Do You Get your Splint off your teeth?

    Okay this might be a little late in reply, but my appliance was made with a tiny little spot on the back that I can get my finger under just enough to pop the thing out. It isn't really easy to do by any means, but I'm getting better at it. I don't know what the plastic retainer retriever is, but I'd guess something to also pry it up with? Can you use something like a butter knife to pop the splint up enough to take out?

    Thanks for your reply, it was very timely. There's no plastic sticking out on mine in order to pull it off. I went back to the orthodontist office and got more retainer retreivers to replace the broken one - a small plastic thing with a hook that goes under an edge of the splint and you yank it off.
