Too many gaps in my teeth

Although, I have good teeth, my problem is that I have too many gaps between the teeth. Apart from the fact that a lot of food debris and meat particles get stuck in my teeth, the gaps also give me an unpleasant look. I have seen a dentist who suggested using braces or bridge to fix my teeth but I don’t have enough money for the procedure. Kindly advise me on what to do.

Braces are a common treatment for gapped teeth (Diastema). Braces have wires and brackets that put pressure on teeth and slowly move them together, which closes a gap. A dental bridge and other cosmetic procedures may also fix some cases of diastema. These services are not very expensive at government facilities.
