  • To close the gaps, power chains methods can be used. On some of the brackets, hooks are present to which power chains are attached. The power chains can also be put in place of ligatures directly on brackets.The time taken for the gap to close varies from person to person and case to case. On an average it takes 4 months to 1 year for gap to close. The gaps which are present on the upper teeth closes faster than the gap present in the lower teeth. The movement of the teeth per month is about 1 millimeter.
