I Have Recently Got A Removable Retainer After Wearing A Brace For Six Years. My Teeth Are Wobbly, Should I Be Worried?

Q.
Hello Dr Shaffie, I’m wondering if you can help me. I had braces for six years and removed them about three years ago.  I had them removed and put in a permanent retainer (a wire behind my teeth). My bottom teeth shifted forward (Class III underbite) so they removed the retainer and gave me a removable retainer to wear for a few months. However, it makes me feel like my teeth are very wobbly and loose. Is this normal or should I be concerned? Is there any risk that my teeth are so weak they could fall off if I bite something too hard? Any information would be great, thanks.

Hello. If your teeth are moving and a bit loose, you should go back to check with your clinic. In the beginning of all aligner treatment, teeth become a bit mobile and then stabilise themselves so it could be down to this, just check back with your clinic and they should explain if it’s anything else. Thank you for your question. I hope this helps.
