Plastic retainer help please?

Hi there. I am 20 yo female and had braces for 2.5 years and got them off when I was 15. When I got them off, they said I had to wear a plastic retainer but didn’t specify for how long. They also inserted a couple of wires behind the front few bottom teeth and behind the front few top teeth. I went to my dentist recently to ask him to remould a plastic retainer for me because mine was getting big holes in it and he said I didn’t need to get another plastic retainer or even wear it at all because of the wires inserted behind my teeth. Is this true? I don’t want to follow his advice and find out my teeth move because I am not wearing my retainer. Thanks!
