Hi,

I got my braces off 4 days ago and am getting my retainers in 3 days but have noticed a small gap starting to emerge in front two teeth. When I get my retainers will they close my teeth to back as they were when I got my braces off or will they be inaffective?

Please help! Am rather worried

Thank you 😀

The retainer you get after braces are removed will keep your teeth in that position. But if you think that your teeth are starting to move back faster then contact the orthodontist as they may to put the retainer in now before the move anymore.

thank you for response! Is the retainer able to force the front two teeth back into position then? I somehow didn't believe it would

If its the retainer I'm thinking of then maybe. What happens when you get the braces off is the teeth start to move back into their original position, hence the gap. But if you get the retainers quickly then wearing them will keep your teeth in the position you had when braces were on. But id urge you to go to your orthodontist asap or else your teeth may have moved to much and the retainers wont fit.
