  • First before getting the treatment, the cause of gap has to be known. If it is due to high frenum attachment then frenectomy has to done and after that gap can be closed either with braces treatment or by cosmetic procedures like composite builtup or veneers. The braces treatment will be most effective but it is long procedure. For more info on tooth gap you can read this article..

  • Yes, definitely these gaps can be cured and the permanent treatment for this is the braces. With braces thisgap can be easily cured though you may have to wear the braces for 18 months to 24 months. These days adult orthdontics is very common and successful.For this you have to go to an orthodontst who will do the need ful after examoining the case.
