Hello Everyone!

I was wondering if someone could help me work out why the retainers are loose?

I do the norm of 3D printing my models, use the erkodent to thermoform and trim the retainer using scissors. (I do notice the 1mm tend to be loose compared to 0.76mm)

When I test the retainer on the 3d printed model, it fits well however some dentists say they are very loose.

Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Thanks!

The 1mm being looser makes me wonder if your foils are getting warm enough to form completely.
