hi there. i just got my braces off about 4 days ago. ive been asked to pick up my retainers in a week but ive already noticed my bottom teeth have slightly started moving and i have a tiny gap between my front teeth. im just wondering if the retainers will fix this when i get them?

(also thoughts on permanent retainers?)

Your retainers will feel very tight if your teeth have shifted, but should move back if you wear your retainers for long periods, especially overnight. After a few weeks, you shouldn't need to wear the retainers during the day. I only wear mine at night now.
