Dear Dr. Barakat,

I have a gap between my two front teeth. Should I get braces or Invisalign? How long will it take to close the gap?

Dear Concerned Parent,

Closing a gap between the front teeth is a common request. After an orthodontic examination, your orthodontist can determine which option (braces or Invisalign) will work best for you. Invisalign is removable, while braces are not. Depending on the size of your space, and on your bite, it will take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to close the space. Talk to your orthodontist about both options, and together, you can determine the right treatment for you.
