Hello I had braces on for 2 and half year and I had retainers on for almost almost 6 months but I noticed that the gap in my upper teeth are getting wider and it becomes hectic whenever I take meat. And unfortunately my retainers broke 2 days back and the gaps seems to get wider so can you suggest on what I shld do? Is it necessary that I have to wear braces again or just fix permanent retainers.
You just wear removable appliance first for few months. When gap closed, then go for permanant retainer. Its will stay in mouth for many years to prevent relapse.
