Spacing Gaps In Teeth

The Orthodontic Centre

Gapped Teeth Treatment Glen Waverley

Spacing or gaps between teeth are most commonly observed between the two upper front teeth. These gaps can result from various factors including genetics, uneven tooth sizes, missing teeth, habits like thumb sucking or tongue thrusting, and gum disease.

Orthodontic treatment offers several options to close these gaps, depending on the severity and underlying causes. Braces or clear aligners  can gradually shift teeth into their proper positions, closing the gaps over time.

Orthodontic treatment is typically favored when the teeth are of a normal size, as it not only corrects the underlying alignment issues but also minimises the expense and long-term upkeep associated with alternatives like Veneers or Composite Bonding.

This patient on the left had 9 months of clear aligner treatment with Dr Katie Xu along with regular gum maintenance appointments with her dentist to achieve a straighter, healthier smile.
