Had my braces on for a very long time, almost two years longer than originally planned. My teeth started angling inward really badly and they had to reangle them outward which put the gaps back and then close the gap again.
The first photo is right before I got my braces off and second photo is right after. I had a slight gap between my top front teeth but they had me wait a week to make my retainer because my gums were puffy so they gave me rubber bands to put on my teeth to pull and keep them together. However, my bottom teeth began gapping during this week between getting my braces off and getting my retainer made. I tried putting bands on the bottom teeth but it looked like they were turning so I stopped. It didn’t look that bad but I needed to get my teeth cleaned so there was plaque filling some of that gap
I went back a week later and they made my retainer but i still have a noticiable gap in my bottom front teeth. The 4th, 5th, and 6th pics are my teeth s month later after my
