Tooth moved to its previous position after removing braces suggest dos and donts

Q. Hello Dr, My top 4 teeth was little protruding, I had put braces for 6 months,actually all the teeths were crowded so doctor had made some gap in between so that my teeth will go in. It moved in but now it has come to the same position and it is shaking and paining. Please suggest what i have to do? If it comes back to the same position then it’s okay but if it protrudes more then it will be a problem. Please suggest what are the do’s and dont’s. Regards

A. Hi, it sounds as though you were not given an orthodontic retainer to wear. Your teeth are moving back to their origional position. You will need to have the orthodontic treatment again and then I cannot stress enough how much you need to wear a retainer to stop your teeth from moving again. This will just keep happening if you don’t, and could cost a substantial amount of money if you keep going back to square 1!
I suggest that you go to your dentist and have an orthodontic referral again. Good luck

    Thanks Doctor. Can you please suggest me so far in your experience have you seen any cases where the teeth protrude more than its previous position.

    I had visit to an orthodontist near my place he told me to leave as it is and not to do anything further. Still my teeth are little shaky i am worried if it protrudes even more further.
