My bottom 2 teeth starting to slightly shift out of place. Can't afford Invisalign or braces. Can a"permanent retainer or anything else help fix it?

In brief: Retainers

Retainers retain, they hold teeth where they are, not straighten them. There are removable appliances, however, that are relatively inexpensive that can be used to accomplish limited tooth movement, but only if there is enough room to move the teeth back into alignment.
See the best tooth mover, an Orthodontist (1st appt usually free) for no-obligation discussion of treatment options.

In brief: Minor Tooth Shifting

Good day;
Consult with a dental practitioner comfortable in achieving minor tooth movement and stabilization.
I would believe an orthodontic department of a nearby dental school would be a wise approach to locating an experienced dentist or the dental department of a convenient community hospital would suffice.
