My Gap

SoI'vee had braces for 3 years and around that time period I also got expanders and while the expanders were on I was left with a gap and I was being told by my ortho that it's normal and it'll go away. So fast forward a couple of months later I got my expanders off but I'm still left with the gap on my ortho is telling me to get a tightening every 2 months. Basically, they wanted me to less frequently than I did before but if I have a gap shouldn't I come more frequently to close it and they also mentioned to me before that I'm almost done with treatment so shouldn't I also be getting power chains at this time.
