internal retainer shaky with invisalign

#1 Postby lucasphh » Wed May 10, 2017 1:34 am

so, i have an internal retainer, the one with 6 teeth on the lower jaw and moudled with cement. today, i was chewing some gum and the retainer on the two teeth in the middle on my lower jaw, suddenly moved. i went to check it out and sure enough i could shake it pretty well with my fingers.
The problem is, im currently using invisalign retainers as well, and they were moudled when i had my internal retainers on.
if i try to re cement my internal retainers, would that be a problem since my invisalign are already set?
should i just ignore the shakiness and leave it, since the other 4 cement are still held in place well?
thanks

When you talk about shakiness, is it the teeth or the retainer itself? If the teeth are shaky, you should have the dentist and orthodontist take a look to check the stability of those teeth.

If it is the bonded wire inside the teeth that is loose, you will want to go and get that fixed but bring your clear retainer with you as well. The wired retainer will need to be placed back in a spot where your clear retainer fits. It is possible that your clear retainer will need to be adjusted in order to fit properly. Good luck!
