hi there dr butt, i am 16 years of age and i had my braces taken off about a year and half ago, the result afterwards was a huge improvement, although they have moved back to there original shape, i have always worn my retainers and still do simpily because i dont want my teeth to move anymore than they already have. i just don’t get why they have moved and i don’t know what to do in order to get them back to their old position so just wondered if you could advise me please? would the Nhs offer me another treatment? or would i have to pay? i have spoken to my parents about it and all they say is that my teeth are fine, they haven’t moved blah blah but i can see that they have and it’s worrying me cos i already had to wear braces all the way through school so i don’t want to wear them through college too! hope to hear from you soon.
