I Got my Braces off Today and I Won't Be Able to Get a Retainer Till Tomorrow?

Will my teeth shift any? If so will the retainer shift it back. I got fitted and everything right after I got my braces off.
Retainers will hold correction
Don't worry, 24 hrs is a minimum required to fabricate them. You should have no problems

Retainer delivered a day after braces removed
The retainer is made from the impression taken when you had your braces off. There really should not be any shifting in a day, and if so, the retainer, should guide the teeth back if there was a slight shift.
