Closing a gap in your teeth is a great idea for more than just the aesthetic reasons. In fact, many people actually find gaps in teeth to be a charming look. And although tooth gaps in children are a normal occurrence, today we take a look at some of the other facts regarding teeth gaps.
Are Gaps Bad?
It is important to note that not all gaps are for serious concern. Although, large gaps in adults can lead to poor tooth alignment since the teeth bordering the gap have nothing to control movement. When this happens it can affect your bite or even cause pain. The best way to tell if your gap is in need of treatment is to book and appointment.
Treatment for gaps depends on the severity and the goals of the patient.
Braces, retainers, oral surgery and cosmetic dentistry also might be recommended.
