RETAINER MOVES TOOTH FORWARD
You need to go see your orthodontist right away. You might need an adjustment or possibly a different retainer, It might be necessary to trim or reshape one tooth slightly on the edge, It might be necessary to do a slight amount of sanding between the teeth to get a little more space. Be sure to see your orthodontist right away and he can advise you as to what options are available.
