My Retainer Doesn't Fit Anymore By Your Favorite Orthodontist In Asheville N CHave you gotten your braces off in the last few months and are finding that your retainer doesn’t fit anymore? Or maybe it is a few years after having treatment by an Asheville orthodontist and your retainer no longer fits. It is possible that you are experiencing relapse because you have not kept up with your maintenance after braces. Most people, children and adults, find that their teeth have moved out of position if they have stopped wearing their retainer on a regular basis. Your orthodontist in Asheville NC has given you instructions as to when and how often you need to wear your retainer to keep your teeth in the correct positions. If it doesn’t fit anymore, it means that your teeth are out of alignment.

Why Doesn’t My Retainer Fit Anymore?

1. I forgot to wear it.

It is true that many people do not like to wear a retainer, especially right after they just got their braces off. Your teeth want some freedom. However, your retainer is there to make sure the teeth retain their position. (Hence the name.) Remember that you or your parents paid a lot of money to align your teeth properly. If you need to, write yourself a note until your retainer is a habit. If it doesn’t fit, contact your Asheville NC orthodontist for help.

2. I lost it.

Losing your retainer means that you need to contact your orthodontist in Asheville right away to get a new one. You can’t go very many days without your retainer right after you removed your braces. The retainer is like a tiny fence that keeps your teeth in order. They will shift because they are used to moving due to your orthodontic treatment.

3. It is uncomfortable.

Braces and retainers can be a bit uncomfortable at first, but then you get used to them. If your retainer is uncomfortable after a few days, call your Asheville NC orthodontics office for an adjustment or measurement. It is possible that it is not fitted correctly. Don’t wait until you are in pain or just leave it out for more than an hour or so. It should be comfortable enough to wear all the time.
