The Origin of Gapped
Each person is
unique, and no one case presents a definitive reason why a space is
present. Genetics can play a major role in how teeth form in your
mouth. If your parents have spacing between their teeth, it is a good
chance that you will also.
largely affect the position of your teeth as well. Breathing mostly
through your mouth and sucking on your thumb are examples of habits
that will affect the position of your teeth.
Adults can also have
habits, like forcing their tongue against their upper teeth or pen
biting, that can gradually shift teeth throughout life. When the teeth
shift, spacing or even jaw joint pain can occur.
How to Correct the
Spaces Between Your Teeth
There are four ways
to correct the spaces between your teeth. Diagnosing the reason the
spaces are present will determine which of the treatments will best
suit your needs.
Gaps between teeth
can be filled by:
Orthodontics (moving the teeth)
Bonding (bonded tooth-colored
Dental Veneers/Laminating (bonded
Dental Crowns (capping)
Placing braces on
your teeth in order to move them into their correct position is
usually the most ideal treatment. Using orthodontics to move the teeth
is the most time consuming, but it is also the most beneficial.
Orthodontics is used to place teeth so that your bite is in harmony
with your smile.
All of the other
treatments to fill the spaces, including tooth bonding, dental
veneers, and dental crowns, although they are very good treatments,
are considered esthetic and functional compromises, and should be
discussed with us in order to determine which restorative dentistry
treatment is best for you.
