All about The Space Between Your teeth!
It is commonly said that God has sent you to earth with an abundance of fortune if you have a gap or a space between your teeth!! Do you believe in this? Are you lucky? I meant..Do you have a gap or space between your teeth?
A diastema (plural diastemata) is a space or gap between two teeth. Most people have diastemata as a common feature, most usually between the incisors and molars. Diastemata can be seen in youngsters and can exist in grown-up teeth too.
Some of the prevalent factors that can cause Diastema are as follows:
- The size of the teeth are smaller relative to the size of the jawbone.
- Missing or undersized teeth.
- Gum diseases
- Incorrect swallowing reflex.
- Loss of Primary teeth.
Diastema or the gap between your teeth can grow or get bigger with age. In some cases it is also seen that diastema gets reduced naturally, but that is rare. For more clarity on this fact, you will have to consult an experienced orthodontist who will tell you how much your diatemia has moved with age.
The space between two teeth can be reduced with various dental procedures according to your needs. Some of the most common procedures that can help in getting rid of diastema and to give natural results are:
- Dental Bonding:
The process of applying a bonding material to existing teeth to fill in space in between each tooth. The material used in dental bonding is tooth colored and indistinguishable from natural enamel.
- Braces & Aligners
Braces have wires and brackets that put pressure on teeth and slowly move them together, which closes a gap. Invisible or removable braces may also fix some cases of diastema.
