Hello, I didnt wear my retainer for 3 years now. 3 days

Resolved Question:


I didn't wear my retainer for 3 years now. 3 days ago I put it on before sleep. It hurt very much but I would like to wear it until my teeth shift into the same position as after taking of my braces. Is this ok and will it work?

Thank you the question has been answered great. Just one more thing I would like to ask. After the month my teeth have shifted back will I only need to wear the retainer at night?

Thank you.

Yes, thank you. My last question is whether it is enough to wear my retainer at night or should i wear it 24/7. Because the pain is very bad.
