When will my teeth stop moving?! Braces were off 12 years ago?
I had my braces off when i was 12. I had them on the top and bottom. I wore my retainer for years afterwards like I was supposed to. Finally my mouth grew too big for it. I'm now 24 and my front teeth are still moving a little bit. It is really upsetting because so much money was spent on braces and I did what they told me to do.

I don't want to bother paying to see if it can be fixed because I feel like I'll have to wear a retainer for the rest of my life. When do teeth stop moving???

No teeth grinding, wisdom teeth were removed, no i'm not imagining things. also i go to the dentist every 6 months. my teeth are very healthy.

Never the teeth always are moving and also you have to check if your third molars are in eruption because maybe thay are moving your other teeth

I believe you are imagining things

sanam d
take x-rays from your teeth.I had root resorption when i had braces and my teeth became mobile!!!.because sometimes forces are so heavy for our teeth.

I see you
Do you grind your teeth in your sleep?

This may be a silly question, but do you still have any wisdom teeth? Mine seemed to stop shifting after I had them out.

weird, you teeth sould have stoped moving.

Go back and ask your dentist or orthodontist if you have a toungue thrust. Or, as someone else suggested your lower teeth may be bumping into the top teeth a bit too hard. This can be adjusted easily.

Not to alarm you but our teeth are always moving. It's when the bite is not properly aligned that there is a problem.

After orthodontic treatment, if you do not want your teeth to shift out of alignment again (become crowded or spaced) you MUST wear your retainer for life! You need not wear them 24/7 or every day for life but at least a nightly a couple of times each week.

Protect the financial investment of your parents and the time investment you have in your smile. It's time for another retainer. It's far less costly than braces again especially nowadays (compared to 12 years ago.) Do this straightaway so that minimal correction can be made with an aligner-type appliance instead of metal, partial or full braces again.

You may only need a retainer. One should not cost over $200. That beats $5K+ and crooked teeth now that you're an adult!

A bright, shiny, straight-teeth smile is SO "in!" On the contrary, the opposite is so "out!" Even those hideous grills!! *laughing*

your teeth are always moving to adjust to growth and changes in your mouth, did you have a wire placed behind your uppers and lowers> permanently place there?> I know it is costly for ortho TX, go for an assessment, you may qualify for invisalign and your treatment may be short if the movement has been limited.

I just had my braces taken off a few months ago, and the orthodontist told me that it would be a good idea to wear my retainers the rest of my life. And he said that, because your jaw continues to grow and change over the years. Maybe you can just get new retainers, and just wear them at night?

I'm a dentist.

You are absolutely right. You may have to wear a retainer for the rest of your life. That's just the way it is.

One of the first things they teach us in our orthodontics classes in dental school is that there is no guarantee that teeth will not move after treatment, be it one month, one year, or twenty years after the braces are removed.

Our teeth constantly want to shift. Especially our lower teeth. There is a constant pressure for them to shift forward in the arch, i.e. towards the middle of the front of the arch. That causes the overlapping of the lower front teeth you commonly see on older people. This happens in both arches, but is much more pronounced in the lower arch. For some people, the adjacent teeth are well-enough in line that no overlapping occurs, but for most, this isn't the case.

Basically, you should have gone back to your orthodontist and had new retainers made periodically. I seriously doubt that your doctor told you, "Adios, have a good life" without informing you (or your parents) that follow-up appointments might be necessary if the teeth were shifting out of place.

At this point, you have three options: 1. braces again, 2. Invisalign (you're probably a good candidate for it since your teeth have previously been straightened and the movements required to re-align them would be simple ones), or 3. leaving your teeth as-is and having a retainer made in order to prevent further movement. It might also be possible to have a retainer made that can re-align the teeth, but that's something your doctor would know. He/she might have other options.

Get yourself to a dentist, girl! You never know how important your teeth are until they start falling out. If your teeth are still moving, something not good is going on. And it is better to fork out a little money now as opposed to a lot of money later to save your teeth. Go now!
