WIDELY SPACED TEETH
Widely spaced teeth can be a temporary condition related to normal growth and the development of adult teeth. Wide spacing can also occur as a result of several diseases or continued growth of the jawbone. Some diseases and conditions that can cause widely spaced teeth are:
• Ellis-van Creveld syndrome
• Morquio syndrome
• Normal growth (temporary widening)
• Possible gum disease
• Sanfilippo syndrome
• Tooth shifting due to gum disease or missing teeth
HOW IS WIDELY SPACED TEETH DIAGNOSED?
A dentist would observe your teeth and also do an X-ray to check for the spacing of the teeth and inherent issues.
HOW IS WIDELY SPACED TEETH TREATED?
Usually in children, this problem is treatable with supportive devices and braces. In older people cosmetic surgery or dentistry procedures is an option, depending on the kind of teeth issues one faces, especially the amount of gapping between the teeth.
DID YOU KNOW?
Not all spaces can be prevented. For example, if the reason for a space is a missing tooth or a mismatch between the teeth and the jaw size, the spaces cannot be prevented without treatment.
