Will my Teeth Be Alright with out my Retainer for a Few Days?

I lost my bottom teeth retainer yesterday afternoon. I'm calling my dentist Monday afternoon to get the retainer ready for my next appointment which is next week also. Will my teeth be alright? Details please on how bad or good it will be.

No worries...you will only be without a bottom retainer for a week and back in your new one! Just make sure you get it  and do not put it off or the teeth will begin to shift back to where they were originally!
