Teeth shifting is a common concern among orthodontic patients who have their braces removed. Here are a few guidelines to help you understand what’s normal and what isn’t.
– Settling and shifting are part of the corrective process and should not be cause for concern as long as the shifting is minor and does not interfere with your daily habits
– A retainer that no longer fits or that feels uncomfortable is one of the easiest ways of identifying abnormal shifting
– Orthodontic treatment isn’t over when braces are taken off, so be sure to follow all instructions regarding how and when a retainer should be worn
If in doubt, speak to your dentist or orthodontist and share your symptoms or concerns with them. Your smile is at stake!
