Should retainers after braces cover all teeth?

Dec 25, 2021
I have always been given retainers that just cover my first molar teeth. I recently have been told that retainers are meant to cover all the teeth as this prevents an open bite forming. Is this true? Is there any medical orthodontic reason why I would possibly be given retainers after braces that do not cover all my teeth. Many thanks.
