Hi, it is more important to brush wisely (like not using a harder brush, using a better brushing technique, not brushing for too long or with too much of force) than number of times you do. These gaps can be due to numerous reasons like gingivitis, or the little physiological movements etc. It is more advisable to visit the nearest dentist and get a proffessional advice which is specific to your condition.

On 17th dec 2017 (i.e yesterday) I went through diasteam treatment for filling the teeth gaps by dentist suggestion but I am not all satisfied with treatment. Because only gaps were filled but my front teeth are facing upward front I am feeling uncomfortable in closing the month. So is there any chance to remove the filling done by the dentist and can correct the gaps by braces. Please please suggest me something good.

Yes it can b done but if there is enlarged labial freenum it should b excised first you may send a picture of the teeth with your lip raised to expose the region than can guide you better.

It is because of the weakness of the gums. You should take proper homoeopathic treatment for stronger teeth.

So here doctor have said that to get braces my 2 permanent teeth has to be extracted but my parents saying that if 2 teeth are removed then there will be gap and after you remove the braces if the gap is still visible then they won't do any another treatment. They saying don't do it if you need to extract teeth because afterwards it pains. So what should I do now doctor. Should I do the treatment. If I extract my 2 teeth and I go for braces treatment so after removing braces will there be any gap. And is it safe to extract 2 permanent teeth, is there any side effects. Please help doctor.

You can close the gaps with braces or with veeners, best treatment plan can only be given on clinical examination and the skill of the dentist.

Actually I can say by seeing your teeth only. So kindly visit a dentist nearby. If you have small teeth and small gap, it can be corrected by composite restoration. If there is no other ption kindly ask your dentist for other option. If he says to go for retainers. Kindly go for that. Ask your dentist that whether can he or she fill with restorations like composite filling. Thank you!

Please consult your dentist as early as possible. He/She might give you a new retainer. Delaying it further will complicate things.

The gap must be a diastema or sometimes t occurs in women after pregnancy, see a dentist and get veneers done.

If you do not have an erupted wisdom tooth in upper or lower arch ie opposite of this tooth or if this tooth is impacted and not erupting better is to get it removed surgically. And for bad breath you should go for oral prophylaxis and a good mouthwash.
