In brief: Call your dentist

This condition is usually discussed before debonding along with recommendations.
Retainers are designed to retain how the condition was finished. Some type of restoration, e. g., resin can be bonded on the space to close it.

In brief: See yr orthodontist

Standard retainers are designed to keep things in place after successful orthodontic treatment.
Remember, for most orthodontic patients the use of retainers is a lifetime commitment. See your orthodontist for evaluation and treatment if needed.
