Hi..A retainer is always fixed when braces are removed after treatment. Unable to wear retainers or skipping it will spoil all the treatment done and teeth will start moving again. Yes it is also true that some cases require surgery as well. But we need a x-ray OPG to give diagnosis here. Regards

This is Dr. Parag, Have to you worn your retainers? If not that may be the reason for the movement. However as surgery was advised in the 1st place it is difficult to comment online and I would prefer to have a look. Tc
