Invisalign Was Good Overall But Most of My Teeth Are No Longer Touching - New York, NY

I finished my invisalign treatment in January of 2010 and I have been wearing my invisalign retainer every night since then. After I finished my treatment my teeth looked perfect and all of my teeth touched each other so I was very satisfied with experience.
However, I was a given a retainer that did not cover the back molars. The molars are now the only teeth that touch when I do not have my retainer in.
I attached a picture of myself biting down and none of my teeth are touching except for the back molars.
My orthodontist told me that this was perfectly natural and the way that the retainers was designed. He recommended only wearing them 3 times at night per week. However, I do not fully trust him.
Should I just stop wearing the retainer or sharply curtail its use?
No Sure About Final Results
