I Have a Gap is the Dentist Only Going to Put Braces Only on The Two Teeth?

Odds are braces will be needed on more than two teeth

Imagine the old Asian counting device, the abacus.  If you move a bead to the left, it leaves a space on the right.  Move another bead and there is another space, etc.  Without an exam or photos, I am only guessing, but odds are that you will need to have brackets on more than two teeth.

Gap between two front teeth

+1

It certainly is possible to do limited treatment with just two brackets...Without more info I can't say much more....other than space between upper front teeth is hard to hold closed so I would always bond (glue) a wire on the inside to hold them together after treatment is finished
