After five weeks of completing my braces treatment my tooth hurts.

Go let your orthodontist know about your issues first. The orthodontist can either take care of them or will refer you to a general dentist to help. Thanks! Dr. Colin Gibson READ MORE

I wear my retainer, so why are my teeth still shifting?

Hope that helps!

Hello and thanks for the question. Even if only one tooth is crooked, orthodontists must use the surrounding teeth as "anchors" in order to straighten it. Yes, the other teeth will move slightly (in a good way), but the majority of movement will be in the straightening of the one crooked tooth. Invisalign Treatment is also a great option for simple cases. Make sure you go to a certified Orthodontic Specialist for a proper diagnosis. Hope this helps.
