Orthodontist in Korea. (Yeah, braces. No, I'm not 13.)
« on: May 16, 2011, 07:55:18 PM »
10 years ago, I got my braces off. I've had a permanent retainer since then on the bottom, as as I was talking last night, half of the glue on the wire broke off. Just fell off. That's never happened before.

Now, there's something sharp and pointy jabbing my tongue. One of my students offered me wax this morning, something that hadn't happened since I was a freshman!

Anybody know a decent orthodontist that can possibly fix this? Anything is appreciated!!

Thanks!

A wire on one of my retainers broke last night.  Did you have any luck finding a place to replace yours?

Thanks

danitravels... I see you're from Yongin, not to far from Youngtong.  If you come over to Youngtong near the Homeplus, there's the medical arts building here. I'm positive I've seen an orthodontist there. Betting he has some English skills too since most of them do in that building.  If you go to the Youngtong Park bus stop, there is ABC Mart, Cafe Pascucci, and Baskin Robins on the first floor.  On the third floor are all of the doctors and the pharmacy. Otherwise, just wander around in the other buildings around Homeplus [next to (3rd floor) and across the street( 3rd floor and up)] there are signs for dentists all over and I'm sure one could point you in the right direction.  They might even have a nurse bring you over to a different doctor. I believe the medical arts building doctors are open tomorrow morning probably until 1 or 2.  Good luck getting your situation resolved.

I had the same thing happen to me this week. I am getting it replaced in Incheon (although I am paying much more than I wanted to...)
