Spaced, Gappy Teeth
Renew your confidence and improve oral hygiene
What causes spaced or Gappy teeth?
Diastema (Spaced and Gappy Teeth) are caused by a variety of different issues:
- Genetics – Undersized teeth (The size and shape or your teeth in comparison to the size of your jaw.)
- Bad Oral Habits (Decay; Incorrect Oral Hygiene with baby teeth)
- Bad habits as a child (Thumb Sucking; Tongue Thrusting)
- Missing Teeth
How will they affect me?
When there are gaps in your teeth or your teeth are missing, the structure of the jaw is drastically impacted and can significantly change the shape of your smile, how you chew and even how you speak. When teeth are missing or spaced out, many patients are unaware that it can have a profound affect on the structure of their jaw.
In general your teeth are constantly moving. Missing or teeth that are not filled allow for your other remaining teeth to move into the space, causing spacing issues which can be painful. Permanent solutions, such as Invisalign or treatment with Crowns/ Veneers allow you to maintain proper chewing function and keep your jawbone functional and healthy.
