I am a 25 year old male who had braces five years back. I had braces for two and a half years for upper teeth only, and I still wear my retainer every night. I recently got veneers on my upper six front teeth, so my dentist had to make a couple of adjustments to my retainer. For about two months the retainer was good, but recently in the morning when I take my retainer out, one or two of my veneers seem to move and when I bite they click back into place. I went to my dentist, but he assured me that everything is fine. He also said that if it bothers me so much, then I should see my orthodontist about getting a new retainer. As an experiment, I wore my retainer for about a week (day and night) and throughout that time, I did not have any movement issues. Then when I switched back to only night-time wear, it started happening in the mornings again.
I am worried that my teeth are being damaged and that they are going to fall out randomly one morning. Do you think I need a new retainer? I have an appointment with my orthodontist in a month. So, I also wanted to know, do I require wearing my retainer until my appointment? And if yes, then how often?

Thank you for the reply. I will continue wearing my retainer until the appointment. Should I wear the retainer throughout the day or only at night?
