Lower reatiner fell off, how quickly do I need to act?


I recently lost my lower fixed retainer, whilst flossing to get on top of gingivitis (which I did) however now I have slight tooth ache, I imagine due to the teeth readjusting to no lower retainer. I've had it for 7 years or so.

I am going on holiday for 5 weeks so I don't think I'll be able to get to an orthodontist before I go. Will my teeth move dramatically
In that time? Or will I be ok to get it replaced after I return?

Thanks in advance
