I Only Have 1 Tooth out of Place, So Could I Get a Spring Retainer? (photo)

I have only one canine out of place and I really don't think I need braces for it. It just needs to be pushed back and that's it. Could I get a spring retainer to help the process or is it only eligiable for people after they have braces and forget to wear a retainer. When I smile, too much preassure is being applied to that top canine and food gets trapped very easily. Any help would be great!!

Inman aligner perhaps

Hard to say from the photo, but an Inman aligner might be exactly what you are looking for.
