In brief: Frequently

Depending on the correction to the teeth, many orthodontists fit you with a retainer you must wear in order for the teeth not to go back to their original position.
Sometimes, mostly in the lower teeth, the retainer might be placed permanently.

In brief: Retainers

Yes.
I still wear my retainers. My first patient from over 10 years ago still wears her retainers and her teeth still look amazing.
