I got my braces removed at the end of 2008 and I wore my retainer like prescribed for month's, then shifted to night's, then every other night, then once a week, then once every three. I stopped completely in 2011 but I have just recently tried wearing my retainer again and it fits. It's sore but not unbearable so should I continue to wear it because my teeth have shifted a little and I would like to have them go bacl
I Just Started Wearing Retainer Again Will It Help to Slightly Shift my Teeth Back in Place? (photo)

It may not move them back exactly as before, but close. You should wear the retainer every night.
