Fixed retainer

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: dent_op  (9 years ago)
Hello,

I wore braces for two years. I recently have them removed and the orthodontist gave me fixed retainer on both top and bottom. I was just wondering why there was no retainer at the back teeth. Wouldn’t the back teeth shift? Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks for any information.

Back teeth need to "settle in" to be stable, and they are not as esthetically critical as the back teeth.
