Hello everyone, around 2 years ago I have my lower left 1 incisor extracted as it had recession and I then had braces fitted to close the gap, the gap is still closing very slowly and I am worried that I now have gum recession or bone loss on my lower right 1 incisor, here are pictures

What does your orthodontist say? Have you seen a periodontist? How are you caring for your teeth? Are you regularly seeing a hygienist? How is your diet? Your teeth are a very nice shape. Please look after them.

Hiya, thanks for reply, I brush my teeth 4 times a day and floss once a day, my orthodontist said I have great oral hygiene and the gap will close, my dentist told me I have healthy teeth and gums and at my last appointment they checked my teeth with this stick thing I think is used to check bone level and they never had any concerns, my teeth look yellow in the pictures but they are in fact white , just worried that I may be starting to get recession on that tooth.

Maybe you are brushing too hard into the gum? Your teeth are a nice colour.

Hi yeh, that may be it, does it look like my gums are receding to you or do they look normal and once the gap is closed do you think the gum will build up in that gap between the tooth? Thanks
