In brief: See an Orthodontist

Many orthodontists offer an initial consultation for free.
A free consultation allows you to find out what type of treatment is recommended and if you are a good candidate for braces or retainer.

In brief: Braces

Retainers retain, they hold things where they are.
To move teeth you need orthodontic treatment, and braces are far and away the best treatment appliances. Braces now, retainers after braces come off. See a qualified orthodontic specialist.
