I am 27 years old & had an ortho treatment of Braces for more than 2 years 3 years back. But the same is retaining back & now I have spaces between the teeth. Can the same be treated now & what will be the process?

This is called relapse. failing to keep the teeth in final position. you can go for braces again after consulting a dentist and check up of teeth strength. go for good retention appliance this time for a longer time
Get a new OPG done from any nearby diagnostics n consult your dentist. Yes!!! The spaces can be closed by using retainers or fixed ortho therapy, depending on severity.
