you cant swallow a retainer. its too big and its made to fit your teeth perfectly, so its not going to start crawling down your throat by itself. you should wear it when you sleep cause you dont want your teeth to move.


ANSWER #2 of 8

All I can say is wear your retainer FAITHFULLY. Your teeth have been on the move for 2+ years and have not setteled in once your braces came off. If you don't wear your retainer to cement your teeth in place, they are sure to move. If you are not sure when to wear your retainer, ASK YOUR DENTIST, MY GOD YOU JUST PAID THEM $5,000+ DOLLARS for those teeth. You're allowed to ask a question.

ANSWER #8 of 8

You can sleep with it, I always did. For it to fall out and down your throat while you sleep, it would NOT have fit properly (would have been really loose). Retainers are supposed to be tight, that's the point.
