Retainer after a year?

Right before my wisdom teeth were removed about a year ago, it became too painful for me to wear my retainer because my erupting teeth caused shifting, even though I was wearing it nightly. I haven't worn my retainer in a year but one of my bottom teeth has shifted quite a bit - it is slightly in front of another. My retainer still fits over my teeth, though. Should I try wearing it to shift my teeth back? I ask because I've had a consultation for Invisalign and it was quite expensive and I don't want to burden my parents.
