I have a permanent retainer fixed between my front two top teeth to stop the gap from reappearing. Why is it not working anymore?

In brief: Detached

It's probably partially detached.
Return to the orthodontist or dentist who made it for you.

In brief: Not Bonded Anymore

If you still feel the retainer in place, it can be that the retainer is longer bonded to one of the teeth it is holding and not the other. It is faking you out! get back to your orthodontist soon to have it addressed.
