Have you noticed that your teeth seem to be shifting after your braces have been removed? This is actually quite common and in the majority of cases, there is little cause for concern. However, keep in mind that there may be times when you will need to wear a retainer in order to keep your smile intact.
By following the rules of your dentist or orthodontist, the condition of your pearly whites will remain pristine. Let us briefly examine a handful of other suggestions to keep in mind.
– Minor shifts can occur weeks and even months after the braces have been removed.
– There may be instances when you will need to wear a retainer for a long period of time.
– If the retainer is very uncomfortable, speak with your orthodontist.
“If for any reason your retainer doesn’t fit well or feel right, talk to your orthodontist about getting an adjustment.”
