Braces

Is it too late?

01/24/2008

Question:

I had braces for three years, and then a removable retainer. After two years on the retainer I lost it and never went back to get a new one. It`s been almost three years since and my gap has come back just a little bit. I`m thinkin about getting it closed. Will I have to get braces again?

Answer:

Maybe. It is possible that the gap could be closed with a retainer.
