Should I get a clear retainer or one with the bar across my teeth?

I'm getting my braces off soon and I want to get a clear retainer but my friends say it's uncomfortable, it stains easily, and it's hard to wear, but then I don't want to get a regular retainer because I want to look like I'm not wearing a retainer and I am a really big gagger so I don't want to have that feeling all the time! Help!

hey, I dont know if this is the same thing, but my sister grinds her teeth in her sleep so the dentist had a clear retainer made for her. She has been sleeping with is for a long time and she never complained about it. But she doesnt eat with it so not sure about staining.

Well, what does your orthodontist think? How long will you have 2 wear it? Here are 3links that give some info, but don't necessarily give a flat "yes" or "no" But I guess it looks like a clear retainer would work ok and be less noticable.

I use to wear one for grinding my teeth, but it did give me that gag feelig but that was more because of the plastic like taste. I only had to wear it at night and did have the bar. My ex use to wear the retainer with the bar but on on the bottom teeth. I think it looks fine with any of them.
