Gap in bottom teeth

I recently had my teeth scaled and it left a small triangle shaped gap between my two front lower teeth. I have not had my teeth scaled for a couple of years but the gap was not present after previous scaling. This area is difficult to floss as the teeth are so close together so there was a build up of tartar at the back. When I floss between these teeth it is so tight it can suddenly slip and hit the gum hard which irritates it. My teeth are otherwise healthy and there was no tartar or plaque in other areas and I've never needed any fillings or other treatment (I'm 25). My dentist told me the gum was slightly damaged causing the gap but not to worry as it was reversible and the gap would go or reduce with good oral hygiene, is this likely?
