Retainer bar has come loose

#1 Post by Ruby77 »

Hi all,

The fixed retainer bar on the back of my top of my teeth has come loose at one end, so is not attached to the last tooth.

I have an ortho appointment in 2 weeks, do you think it will be ok to wait until then or will my teeth move in that time?

I am still wearing a retainer at night.

I personally would contact the orthodontist and let them know.
