Permanent retainers count as current treatment?

I completed my orthodontic treatment (braces), about 3 years ago, and since then I've had clear retainers I wear at night, as well as top and bottom permanent retainers, glued to the back of my teeth. On the USAFA admissions page, it says I can't be going through current orthodontic treatment. Do the permanent retainers count as that?

Head to the DoDMERB forum on this site. Hopefully Mr. Mullen can answer your question over there. He doesn't like to come here to answer medical questions.

Obviously Mr.Mullen is the expert but my son is DoDMERB qualified with both top & bottom permanent retainers & and a removable upper retainer

I don’t recall if I even thought about my son’s retainers when we did the questionnaire...

@EhzErz, something else to double check!
