Mild Tooth Movement Relapse

There are occasions following orthodontic treatment when some of the teeth begin to move. Misaligned teeth may become crooked again and gaps may re-open.  These teeth are referred to as “relapsing.”  There may be various reasons for this occurring, but the most common reason is caused by not wearing retainers for long enough following orthodontic treatment.

If your teeth or your child’s teeth have relapsed and you would like an opinion on what can be done to correct this or prevent it from worsening, our orthodontist can offer advice following a detailed examination.

Your options may include being fitted for new retainers or undergoing a short course of minor orthodontic treatment to correct the issue, prior to having new retainers made.

If you have misplaced or broken your retainer, feel it is uncomfortable, or are concerned your teeth are relapsing to their former position, please call Bank Cottage Dental Practice on 01454 412053 to book an examination with our specialist orthodontist.
