I'm 17 and a year ago I got braces on only my top row (on the NHS). A year later and they were off and my teeth were straight, I (stupidly) lost my retainer 3 months later when I left it on a flight and paid for a new one. I got my teeth remoulded and came back 5 days later to pick up my new retainer. The retainer was loose and would bounce left to right, as well as being shorter than my original: it didn't cover my back two molars? My orthodontist apologised and said she'd send a new one and then took a second mould, for the meanwhile she fiddled around with the loose retainer and cut the edges so that it might fit better (it didn't). I haven't heard back from them and now, two weeks later, my back molars have started moving back so that they are no longer straight, I am in constant pain and due to the "adjusted" retainer, the sides cut into the inside of my mouth where she tried to make them fit.
Can I sue my othrodontist on the grounds that... Watch

Is there any reason why you haven't chased this up after 2 weeks?

your teeth won't move that much in two weeks
just call them and ask for a retainer
