Dental Retainers

My dentist gave me a removable retainer for my upper teeth, and he fixed a permanent retainer for the lower teeth. The retainer is so irritating and i can see my teeth moving even though i wear it 24/7. He said i dont have enough space to have a permanent retainer for my upper teeth. But i really want to get permanent retainer for my upper teeth too before its too late and my teeth become crooked again. Where can i have it?

Changes takes place in your body till the time you are living. So teeth are gonna move. Retainers prevent this movement. Removable upper retainers are favoured by many orthodontist because there are chances of breakages of fixed one (due to banging of lower teeth on inner side). Tightening of retainers and regular follow up is very much necessary to prevent relapse.
