Helloooo bees! I just got braces a week ago and they are coming off before my wedding in June but not permantely.. Ortho said I can either do:
a) put braces back on after wedding or
b) continue treatment with invisalign
Initially I thought I’ll just put my braces back on after the wedding but that could be around 10 days of having nothing on my teeth.. scares the shit outta me that my teeth will move back to how they were! Or just do invisalign for rest of treatment and hopefully be wearing trays very soon?

Usually when you get braces off they will make you wear a retainer at night time. I had braces for 5 years and when i got them off I was sick of them and didnt even wear the retainers. My teeth still look great and havent moved.

10 days is not long enough for your teeth to move back exactly how they were. Typically, when your braces are removed permanently, you wear a retainer, for a alotted amount of time (usually years (1-3+)), and then you don’t. I never wore my retainer, my teeth have never moved, since. So.. I highly doubt that in 10 days they will move all the way back to how they were. 🙂 And I had seriously jacked up teeth, the most I THINK maybe have moved (in like 6 years now) is that maybe, one of my teeth on the bottom.. has shifted just a little, to put a tiny space… that I think the only real reason I feel like I even noticed was because I floss like crazy, and it slid a bit easier between these two teeth. Otherwise visually, I have not seen any difference.
You’re fine, don’t worry. 😉
