How to Correct the Gap between your Teeth Image
Diastema, especially known as gap between the teeth, develops most often between the two upper front teeth; however, gaps can also involve any two teeth, regardless their position in the mouth.

Our team of dentists in Dubai can offer proper treatment plans and information about this type of dental problem, our dentists being specialized in a wide range of dental services.

A discrepancy between the size of the jaw bones and the size of the teeth can produce either additional space between teeth or overcrowding of teeth. If the teeth are too little for the jaw bone, gaps between them will appear and if the teeth are too big for the jaw, they will be crowded.
 

Why do gaps develop?


Occasionally, some teeth are absent or short and this situation appears frequently with the upper side incisors and that can produce the upper central incisors to create a space. A diastema also can be produced by an extra-large labial frenum, which is a piece of soft tissue that usually spreads from the inside of your upper lip to the gum just above the two upper front teeth.

Improper habits can also run to gaps between the teeth, like thumb sucking that inclines to pull the front teeth forward. If the gap was caused by a mismatch between the permanent teeth and the jaw size, the spaces can be estimated to persist through life.


Proper treatments to correct the gap between the teeth


Occasionally, a diastema is part of a set of issues that necessitate orthodontic treatment plans. Our dentist in Dubai will deliver suitable treatments, in order for you to correct the glitch and solve an appearance problem.

The patients will receive braces that move the teeth together and, if necessary, the dentists in Dubai can propose a full set of brackets, no matter where the gap is, on both upper and lower teeth. And this because moving any teeth will affect the entire mouth.

If the lateral incisors are too small, our dentist in Dubai will propose widening them using veneers, crowns or even bonding. If the patient has a space because of missing teeth, he might need more extensive dental repair that contains partial denture, bridge or even dental implants.

If the gap between the teeth is created by periodontal disease is required a periodontal treatment. After gum health is repaired, in most cases, braces can be utilized to move the teeth into the proper position.

Please feel free to contact our team of dentists in Dubai, in order to receive proper treatment plans, regarding the correction of the gaps, in our modern dental clinic.
