Will I need braces again? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 2
It appears that you've had some relapse. Without wearing a retainer on a regular basis, there are never assurances that your teeth will remain in place. Based on your photo, it appears that you may be able to realign your teeth with a retainer being worn on a FULL time basis for a period of time. You will likely require a new retainer to accomplish this.
Keep in mind, though, that moving forward you will need to continue wearing a retainer on a more regular basis once the teeth are back in place to ensure that your teeth don't move again!
Best of luck!
Treatment Options for Orthodontic Relapse
If very little shifting has occurred and only minor tooth movement is needed to align your teeth, then an active retainer could be an option. If however the relapse is more severe, then consider Retreatment with Invisalign Express or Braces.
