How Dentısts Close Gaps In The Front Teeth

Dentısts Close Gaps

Dentists can close gaps in the front teeth using a variety of methods. Here are some of the most common:

  1. Orthodontic treatment: If the gap is caused by misaligned teeth, orthodontic treatment may be recommended. This can include traditional braces or clear aligners, which gradually move the teeth into the correct position.
  2. Dental bonding: Dental bonding is a process in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the teeth and then hardened with a special light. This can be used to fill in small gaps or spaces between the teeth.
  3. Dental veneers: Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are placed over the front surface of the teeth. They can be used to close gaps, as well as improve the appearance of stained or misshapen teeth.
  4. Dental crowns: Crowns are used to cover and protect damaged or decayed teeth, but they can also be used to close gaps between teeth.
  5. Dental implants: If the gap is caused by a missing tooth, a dental implant may be recommended. This involves placing a titanium post into the jawbone and then attaching a prosthetic tooth to the post.

The best option for closing a gap between the front teeth will depend on the individual case and the dentist’s recommendation based on the patient’s dental health and cosmetic goals.

What Causes Dıastema? Explaınıng The Basıcs

Diastema can be caused by a lot of different things. The most common cause of diastema is an incorrect swallowing reflex as a child, known as “tongue thrusting.” In tongue thrusting, the tongue pushes against the teeth instead of the roof of the mouth when you swallow. Over time, this can cause issues with the teeth, including bite problems and large gaps between the front teeth. Diastema can also happen if one or more of your teeth are smaller than usual. Undersized teeth may cause gaps to develop between the front teeth. Less commonly, diastema can be caused by issues like gum disease or an oversized labial frenulum, also known as a “lip tie.”
