Today, I arrived 10 minutes early to my orthodontist's office to get my braces off. It turns out my appointment was actually one hour earlier, and now the next available appointment is in four weeks. FML

Not necessarily. I know some people who stopped, and their teeth haven't grown back together. I also know some people who wear theirs every couple of days.
It just depends on the person!

You have to wear your retainers pretty much 24/7 when you first get your braces taken off, and then after a few months you have to start wearing them only during the night, and then wean it off to 6 nights a week until you get to 1 night a week. After that you can probably go down to once a month, but I've been on one night a week for the last 5 years and I can feel them moving if I leave it too long, that and it gets incredibly painful to put them in. My wisdom teeth are still coming through so I think if I don't wear my retainers, the wisdom teeth will destroy it. One tooth on the bottom already looks like it's being pushed out of place :(

I'm sorry to hear about that, OP. But don't worry. It will be worth the wait. Until you get them off, remember that there is nothing wrong with have braces. I dont know what you look like, but I'm sure you look just fine. Keep your head up, OP. Time will fly by and your appointment will be here before you know it. (:

@13 This website is full of first world problems, so I don't understand why you felt the need to single out this one.
