Its not a good sign to have pain after getting an implant in our jaw. The pain can occur for a day or two but if it is prolonged it could be a sign of infection. however in your case , you mentioned you wear reatiners- that is one of the possible cause of pain. you are not suppose to wear reatiners for atleast two weeks till the gums over the implant heal well. or if it is too important then your retainers must be lined by a "soft tissue liners" which will prevent any trauma to the underlying gums when you wear the retainer. its not a good idea to wear retainer in post surgical phase. avoid for two weeks and consult your dentist. let him do a clinical examination and take an x ray of the area. be cautious if you see "pus" coming out. thats a sign of infection. must go back to your dentist and talk. good luck.

welcome to HCM,
there is high point contact between yr retainer and opposing teeth,, so kindly go and get it checked and corrected,,and enjoy the almost natural like teeth feel.
