Unfortunatelly, guys, I'm an expert because I wear braces myself(which will hopefully be taken out in a month or a couple of months). Retainers are called retenedores. But don't get me started because just thinking of dentists makes me shiver... Anyway, let's look on the bright side, after two long years I will soon have the smile of a Hollywood star...(por cierto, ¿ conocéis la expresión echarse flores?... es un poco como lo de no tener abuela).
Frenillo here in Spain is something different, it's a small membrane we have under the tongue (frenum in English) which in some people is abnormally short resulting in a speech defect.
