    teeth spacing after braces

    Hey I had braces when I was younger for like 2 years.. They were taken off like 4 years ago, i know i was wrong not to wear my retainers full time but i couldn't speak with them at all.. the lisp was too bad! so I used to wear them every night for months... and then i lost my retainers, now my front teeth are starting to space and I really don't know what to do to make it better? Am i supposed to get braces again? Retainers? Can i cosmetically fix it up? how?

    Thanks for your help

    I would go to the orthodontist immediately and get fitted for a new retainer. You might need braces again.
    Same thing happened to me...I had perfect teeth. Then I stopped with the retainer and didn't get my wisdom teeth out when I should have. Well they ended up growing in part way on top and sideways on the bottom...caused crowding and I have to have braces again! I really wish I had taken care of it sooner and I will wear my retainer forever now!

    Your orthodintist may be able to close the spaces with retainers or may use invisalign to move them back. Sometimes getting brackets again may be the best option. Your orthodontist will go over all your options.
