Are you self-conscious about your smile? Maybe you have gaps between your front teeth? At The Dental Room we can fix dental gaps or Diastema with the advancements available in dentistry and orthodontics today.
Dental Gaps or Diastema is known as the space between two teeth. This typically occurs in the upper front teeth. There are different reasons why diastema happens. It can be due to a mismatch in the size of the upper and lower jawbones. However, the size of a person’s teeth can also cause an extra gap. If the teeth are too small or too large, this can create crowding in the mouth.
Periodontal disease can also contribute to the development of dental gaps. Incorrect swallowing reflexes can create spaces between teeth too.
One of the best ways to minimize the chances of creating dental gaps is to keep a diligent dental health care routine. This. Includes regular brushing and flossing are to prevent bone loss. However, if you already have diastema or dental gaps, braces, dental implants or crowns and veneers can be a solution.
Braces can help teeth shift or realign through continuous pressure over a span of time. The use of braces is often one of the most popular ways to fix diastema.
If your dental gap is as large as a full tooth in width, a dental implant can be your best option. Dental Implants can either be fixed or a removable replacement that fits into gaps.
Veneers are glued to the front of the teeth to fix the problem, while the primary purpose of crowns is to repair the overall damage to your teeth.
