Will I forever be plagued by orthodontia?

I was just biting into my late afternoon snack of an apple when I felt a pop in my mouth.

Oh that's right. I have a set of permanent retainers, a small wire affixed by cement to the back of my upper and bottom teeth.

That sound? That was the sound of cement ungluing. Cement I then spit into my hand.

And now I have the indescribable but annoying sensation of a partially-attached retainer whose existence I'd forgotten altogether. Anyone know a good LA-based orthodontist? This is going to be a fun weekend with some metal sticking out in my mouth.
