As long as your clear retainer doesn’t hurt and still fits over your teeth, you can wear it – even if it feels tight. Your teeth may have slightly shifted, and you may need to wear your retainer longer each day to prevent your teeth from moving.
Try wearing your retainer full-time for a few days to encourage your teeth to move back into their correct positions. If the retainer continues to feel uncomfortable, contact GSO Orthodontics to determine the next steps.
What if the retainer doesn’t fit at all or feels painful?
Don’t force it. Contact GSO Orthodontics, who will schedule a retainer check, evaluate your situation and determine what actions, if any, are needed. It could be as simple as making a new retainer to maintain your current teeth positioning.
