Hi doctor,

I have teeth gaps and I want to know whether by using the braces, these gaps can be filled or not. And also I want to know how much time will it take to fill the gaps. Gaps are at:

  1. Upper front teeth.
  2. Lower front teeth.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I had gone through your question I can understand your concern about your spacing.

Yes, the gaps or space can be treated with braces (orthodontic appliances). It will take you at least a year. You have upper midline diastema (gap between two upper front teeth), it takes time and may need a retainer after braces are removed for next six months. You need to consult an orthodontist for fixed orthodontic treatment.
