When I was a teen, I wore braces for years. I am now 45 years old and my teeth have gone back to being crooked. My dentist said, it might be due to inadequate use of retainer after getting my braces off. I wish I had worn it out for many years. My teeth should have not gone back to how they were. Now my grand daughter is due to take her off in a few weeks and will have her retainer soon. How long should she wear her retainer? Does she have to wear it 24/7?
Please help! I don't want her to regret like I do now.
Thank you very much!
