hi usually a fixed retainer might be given to the patient in such cases. nonetheless a limited orthodontic treatment can help to bring the front tooth back to its position again.

please mention your current age !if you are below 25 then surely braces will help you a lot. the gaps will close permanently only after you get a two year orthodontic treatment.. all the best

Hi, a retainer does help to a certain extent, but if you had gaps between your upper teeth, a minor procedure to reduce the frenum attachment between your two front teeth might also help. You can try geting a retainer and observe how it helps, and later get permanent retention done.
