I had a brace 5 years ago and my teeth moved because I didn't the retainer long enough. If I had another brace how long would I wear it for?
Depends on need: Depends on severity of the problem. Sometimes side and back teeth drift forward as from teeth relapse, making re-correction more complex and/or less stable.

If one of my bottom front teeth moved forward after wearing braces and retainers, is there a way to correct only that tooth? And if the root of that tooth is already short, is there a way to correct the tooth without making its root shorter?
Complex Questions: If only that one tooth shifted (highly unlikely) then only that one tooth will be repositioned. Moving teeth with light, continuous forces should not damage or cause the root of that tooth to resorb. Your local orthodontist can further explain. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

YES: Teeth will in fact move w/o wearing your retainer. How much they move is not predicable. Each person will have different degrees of tooth movement. However, when you put your retainer back into your mouth, you will notice how tight it is. That is how much your teeth have moved. If you can't get the retainer back in, they have moved alot. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly.: Some people's teeth shift very rapidly. Some people can feel tightness when they put in their retainer every night because their teeth have already shifted. That being said, if you only miss one night, most likely you should be fine. Just try not to miss too many nights in a row because if is quite possible that if you forget to wear it long enough, your retainer may not fit anymore. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I lost my retainer, and I wont get a new one until a week and a half from now. Will my teeth shift in that amount of time?

If you just got your braces off, your teeth will shift more. Why is it taking that long to get your new retainer? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
