Default *gag* Orthodonic Retainer Mold help??

So, I've had braces for 2 years (3 tomorrow) and my orthodontists finally said that I'm ready to take of the braces!!!!!! The only problem is that I haven't had moldsbefore and I have a strong gag. There's no other option but to get molds. Yesterday my ortho gave me a mold to 'practice on' but do you guys have any tips on how to survive both top and bottom. Right now we're trying just the bottom, but I really want two removable retainers.

Anyways, any advice would be really helpful!!

I had to get eight different molds because I'm getting Invisalign. The bottom one isn't that bad actually, it kinda feels cool at first (Emphasis on the AT FIRST, you get really annoyed by it by the end). But the top one is awful. Just warning you. I just had to breathe through it, just focus on your breath and not the gooey stuff that's making you gag. Remember that if it's not done absolutely perfect, they have to do it again and you don't want that. Just breath. That's my suggestion.

Thanks...I'm hoping that the top one goes fine for me.
What's does the material taste/feel like? Thanks!

It really doesn't taste like anything and you have more of a chance of getting it on your nose than your taste buds (It gets all OVER your face) but it just feels gooey, imagine how soft plastic would taste/feel like - that's it.

Well, I've only gotten molds when I had to get my braces ON. Didn't you get those Leia? The molds I had weren't bad......the stuff was really cold though, and had an odd texture. It didn't really taste like much, maybe a little taste of something I can't describe. It's not bad, although if you have metals trays, they might punch your gums and hurt a little towards the end.......

I don't know if it's the same type of mold though. *shrugs* Just don't worry about it; we usually make things out to be worse than they are.

Good luck!

No, they came out with a new technology in my area that you just have to get a scan...but the the technology isn't available yet for braces.

Thanks for the info...oh, and I have plastic trays.

So..... just an update. My orthos tested me with the bottom molds...no problem! So on September 7th, I'm getting my braces off...both of them.

And my orthos have flavored mold stuff! I got root beer.
