I just got my braces off on Wednesday. I haven't worn my retainer since Thursday. Is it possible for my teeth to move. If so, how much?

  • Retainers are given to retain the position of the tooth that has been asigned by wearing of braces. Its better that you should wear retainers immediately after getting off the braces. They prevent failure of treatment medically termed as relapse. If  you feel a bit awkward wearing retainers during day time than you can wear them at night but at least wear them.
