I had an overbite & had braces to fix it, I lost my top retainer, do I absolutely need another?

Overbite costs options retainer
Your teeth will relapse, i.e. slowly going back to their before-treatment position. How long it will take for the relapse to occur varies from individual to individual. After 3-6 months full time wear, retainers are to be worn at night time indefinitely. Consult with your orthodontist.
