So I got my braces off a month ago and my upper teeth started moving, even with the retainers. My front teeth now have a gap and I'm not sure what the dentist is going to do with it. Is there still a way for it to go back to its old position right after the braces? Retainers don't seem to help and when I asked my dentist if she can maybe adjust the retainers she said those don't work that way. :/
Also, one of my upper wisdom tooth may be need to be pulled out. Is it absolutely necessary? Is it expensive?
Lastly (phew!), my panoramic xray showed that 2 of my lower molars may need a root canal. I didn't quite understand what the dentist said, something about the roots of my molars absorbing the bone? She says its so that my teeth won't move but frankly I don't want to have anything done with those teeth anymore especially because they don't cause me any discomfort. She says it's either a root canal or I can have it pulled out (no way! Having 2 missing lateral incisors is bad enough). Any advise on this guys? :(
Thanks so much!
