How long will it take for my retainer to re-straighten my teeth?

I got my braces off last week, and when I got them off I had to wait 2 days for my retainers. Within those 2 days, my teeth shifted a little. My orthodonist said that if it's minor shifting, the retainers should be able to move the teeth back in place.
I've been wearing my retainer constantly for a week straight though, and nothing's happened. My teeth don't even feel sore from moving. When I first wore my retainer my teeth were sore for the first 2 days, but now it doesn't bother me at all. Do you think my teeth will straighten up throughout time? If so, how much longer? Because it's been a week so far and there's no improvement, and my teeth aren't even sore
