I Took off my Braces Myself Cause I Didn't Have a Dentist Will my Teeth Shift if I Use a Mouth Guard?

Your Teeth Will Shift After Removing Braces by Yourself

Once the braces are off youir teeth, the teeth will tend to shift back towards their original position. If you don't have a dentist, how are you going to get a well-fitting retainer? A mouthguard alone, especially an over-the-counter type, will NOT hold your teeth in position.
