If I don't wear my retainer will I have to get braces again? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I had braces ever since I was 9 and got them on at 14. I didn't wear it often for about a year and now I have an overbite. I'm scared i'll have to get braces again, plus, I have a check up tomorrow to see if the retainers fit (the top one can't fit). Will I have to get braces again??

    Maybe. Every case is different. Talk to your dentist and you might be able to find another solution (eg. Invisalign), but next time make sure you wear your retainers every night.
