Retainers are made to keep the teeth FROM moving, not move teeth. To MOVE teeth, there are 3 methods:

Once the teeth are where you are happy with them, then get a new retainer to keep them there. You MAY consider some minor periodontal procedures to relieve some tissue stress that may be influencing stability. I suggest seeing an orthodontist and periodontist that are familiar with each other from working together.
