Gap between teeth

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: billy_19murahmi  (8 years ago)
I wore braces for one and half years.
My dentist removed it last month.
But i'm getting gap between the teeth in my lower jaw again (bottom teeth) :(
He told me that its because i didn give the impression for the retainers to be made yet!
if i wear the retainers, will the gap between the bottom teeth close?

any solution to close the gap..?
please help :(

Retainers RETAIN the position of teeth. If you want them ALIGNED, again, you must have an ALIGNER fabricated. Then after they move, you can have a retainer.

Incidentally, I take an impression for a retainer BEFORE I take the braces off, so there will be no time lapse during which the teeth can move. The day the brackets are removed, the retainers go in.
