Do you get to choose which type of retainer you get?

I have braces and I was wondering if you get to choose to wear either the metal retainer or the clear one. Does the Orthodontist choose for you?

You get to choose the type of retainer you get. There are three types of retainers you can choose from such as the metal ones, plastic ones and the permanent ones.

Normally you just get the plastic ones unless you tell the orthodontist otherwise. You usually just have a choice between the plastic one, or the permanent one which is just a wire that goes behind your teeth and keeps them straight.

I didn't get to choose, so I guess it just depends on your orthodontist.
