    my dog ate my retainer about 2 months ago however I have not been able to go and get a new one because of exams and holiday, I have noticed a small gap in my front 2 teeth and It is really worrying me. if I get a new retainer will it close the gap or will I have to get braces again?? please help

    No because to get a new retainer they have to take a mold of your current teeth. I'd go asap before the gap gets bigger.

    You should be able to get new retainers of your teeth after the braces were taken off since the company would have kept the scan in your patient file.
    So pay for the new ones and wear them regularly. The price of the new ones will depend on your dentist. Mine cost £60 for top and bottom.
