Will my teeth move back to where they started after I get my braces off?

You will need to wear a retainer or have one fitted to your teeth to stop your teeth from moving back to their original positions after your braces are removed. Try to wear the retainer as advised by your dentist or orthodontist. Over time, your teeth will become more established in their new positions and have less of a tendency to move around.
