WIDELY SPACED TEETH
As the name suggests, Widely Spaced Teeth is a condition where there is an evident gapping in the teeth. In children it can be a temporary condition and is replaced with teeth falling off. The symptoms of these include visible gapping between the teeth, especially the front teeth. One can also have issues with food constantly getting stuck in between teeth due to the gap.
HOW IS WIDELY SPACED TEETH DIAGNOSED?
An examination of the mouth, teeth, and gums will be done. Other tests that may be done include:
• Dental x-rays
• Facial or skull x-rays
HOW IS WIDELY SPACED TEETH TREATED?
Some dental restorations like crowns, bridges, or implants may help improve the appearance and function of teeth. Some people get braces, which move the teeth together. If a large labial frenum is causing the gap, the frenum can be reduced through surgery called a frenectomy. A splint can be used to attach teeth to other teeth and prevent them from moving again. In some cases, a bridge will be required to close the spaces.
DID YOU KNOW?
Many people are surprised to learn that their mouth is the source of their frequent headaches. When large gaps between the teeth cause alignment problems, the muscles of the jaw, face and neck are affected. Sometimes, they become sore and stiff because they are not able to align and function properly. Other times, the discomfort is caused by the stress of compensating for a poor alignment to make chewing and speaking possible in different ways. Either way, all of this tension and stiffness leads to chronic and recurring headaches.
