I’ve had braces, but after they came off, my teeth started moving and the gap between my front teeth opened back up. I’ve been wearing tooth effects bands to help keep the gap closed, but today my teeth feel a little loose. Do you know what is going on or recommend anything?

I want you to stop using the teeth effects band right away. Hopefully, we can catch this in time to save your teeth. These bands are very dangerous. You could permanently lose your teeth.
You have a couple of options: You can get a removable retainer or a permanent retainer. Either one could easily be made by a dentist who does orthodontic work. That should help you with your gap.
