    I am getting my braces off next week and there is still a small space on my upper left canine tooth. I have been told by my orthodontist that is due to my tooth shape and it can not be closed.

    Does this look like something that is normal or can the space be closed? IMG_1217.jpg IMG_1218.jpg IMG_1219.jpg

    I would side with the orthodontist. Many times when teeth gets moved in a forceful way, root and bone damage and sometimes pulpal damage can occur. Always follow your orthodontist's recommendations.
