Q.

Draadplaaitjie vs Retainer?

Hello Doc!
Help my asb.!!!
Ek het vir 1 jaar met my draadplaaitjie(gewone een) geslaap en het 'n nuwe tandarts gekry en sy het vir my die deurskynende retainer aanbeveel. Ek het die retainer vir 4 aande nou, maar dit voel of my tande skyf. Vanoggend het ek my ou plaaitjie ingesit en toe wil hy nie pas nie. Is dit normaal of skuif my tande regtig terug na die posisie voor my draaitjies?

it is not normal for the teeth to move after having used your retainer for 1 year. return to your dentist/orthodontist with BOTH retainers as soon as possible. she may need to adjust the new one
