Yes: you can go back to your Orthodontist and he may have to make some adjustments and fabricate a new retainer.

What a shame: To spend all that time, effort, and money for a correction just to throw it away by not following post-Rx instruction. See the Dentist that treated you for revision treatment, then follow retention instructions to the letter. As clear aligners not as accurate as braces in correcting root malpositions, relapse tendency is higher, and aligner patients have to be super diligent with retainers.

Maybe: Get back to the original dentist/orthodontist whom did the treatment and get your options. You may need to get a second opinion if what you hear does not satisfy you.

See an orthodontist: If too much movement has occurred you will need a new minor re-treatment. The best is to return to your original orthodontist and have him/her evaluate your current situation.

Possibly: Did your dentist go over the potential side effects of Invisalign before you started? I think you should go back to the dentist and be evaluated.
