Reusing retainer as a mold
Hi Zakir, thank you for posting your question here. Its very difficult to use the broken retainer as a mold. I am sorry to hear that the teeth have moved a little bit. If it is only a very minor movement, dentist and technician can correct it before making new retainer. IT all has to be done on a new impression though. Hope it helps.
