Don't Worry About It Just Try It On To See If It Fits And If It Doesn't Go To The Dentist To Have It Rejustied. And If That Doesn't Work Then You Will Need Braces For a Short Amount Of Time Maybe 2 More Weeks =]


sure222
wear them all day for the next couple days till they go back. if they dont move back you may need braces.


creepout
bad choice...i did this too. my teeth shifted slightly so i didnt really need to get them fixed, but if yours are all the way back to what they used to be, they will probably want to put braces back on you...this happened to a friend of mine...

tht's why you need to wear your retainers! have your paren take you back to the dentist! To re -adjust

No, just get the bloody retainer back in your mouth. What do you think they made it for!

You should be wearing your retainers 24/7 for the first year at least. Then wearing them at night for the rest of your life. This is cheap insurance so that you don't end up in the dental office in your 30's, have kids who need braces and your teeth are back to where they were before. See it every day!

I don't really think thats possible!

I went on a 2 week vacation this summer and I forgot my retainers at home. My teeth were fine and my retainers fit when I got back home.

Since its Sunday, you can't go to the orthodontist, but I would suggest calling them tomorrow morning. Ask them what to do and be honest about not wearing them.

For now, try to fit them back in your mouth. If they don't fit after a few minutes, don't force it! There really expensive to replace.

Just try to get your retainers back in, it'll hurt when you do get them in but you just have to deal with the pain lol. if you can't force them in, go to your orthodontist and have them loosen the retainer a little for you. i doubt you'll have to get braces again.

Well because you just got them so soon put your retainers back in and it will be painful but the teeth will go back.

Don't be an idiot like me and not wear your retainers because my teeth are now crooked!

Did they move so much that your retainer doesn't fit anymore? It took me *months* of not wearing mine before my teeth moved that much.

Well, try fitting your retainer back in and keep wearing it, if it doesnt fit, then see your dentist immediatly so your teeth dont move more

Put the retainer on and only remove it to eat and to clean your teeth. Your teeth are mobile right now and need to be held in one position by your retainer until they have tightened up with new bone filling in around them over the next few months. After awhile you will be able to go to just night wear. Try not to forget it again, as it will slow down the time for when you can go to just nights. The teeth will shift back when you place the retainer in, you won't need braces all over again. But if you continually leave the retainer out, your teeth will shift back to their pre-braces position. Don't forget it anymore.
