While everyone wants a beautiful smile, many people may unfortunately have a gap between their two upper front teeth. This gap can be caused by a myriad of factors such as crowding of the teeth, missing teeth, a mismatch between jawbone size and teeth size or other dental issues. If left untreated, a gap can present a variety of cosmetic and health problems. For example, these spaces can leave gums exposed, resulting in possible injury or even gum disease.
If you’re experiencing gaps in your teeth, Orthodontic Associates can provide a variety of treatment options so you can be smiling more in no time.
Closing the Gap
There are a few treatment options that can eliminate gaps between teeth. Our orthodontists at Orthodontic Associates will assess several factors to help determine the best course of treatment for you. These can include the size of the gap, its location or locations in the mouth, and the reason for the gap. After speaking with an orthodontist and a treatment coordinator, patients are given choices that can help close the gap, treatment options may include modern braces or Invisalign® treatment.
