I've had my braces off for probably about 6 years, wearing retainers every night after braces.
I'm starting to notices that my overbite and overjet are back. I'm also noticing that my upper retainer wire keeps going up to my gum line every night. Even my lower teeth are touching the back of my front teeth at the top every time I bite.
I'm concerned that I'm in for another round of braces... My orthodontist seems to say that everything looks fine, but I'm feeling skeptical about that.
This sounds scary. I'd feel so helpless if the overjet was so strong to push the wire up, then what's the point of wearing retainers?!
Logically, if your overjet really is back and the wire got pushed up, then there should be a gap between the wire and your teeth. Is that so?
