    Hello, I have braces and the only thing which is left to fix is the gap which was left by an extraction, I have had braces for a year and 6 months now and it’s still not closed, what could be causing this not to close and will it definetly close or will I have to live with this gap? my orpho said that it will close when I asked them so I am really hoping it does. Also if the gap does close do you think there will be a black triangle?

    Also I put my tongue in between the gap a lot could this be causing it not to close?

    Thanks

    I had gaps bigger than that just before I got my braces in (I got an extraction too) and they closed up just fine. So provided you don't have any problems (which I'd imagine you don't considering what the ortho said), just give it time and you'll be fine.

    I guess some peoples teeth move quicker than others.
