Diastema is a condition that is represented as gaps in the teeth. This is majorly a cosmetology condition as the spaces between teeth look very unappealing. The most common is the spacing between the front two teeth in the upper jaw. The most common cause for this condition is low muscle attachment. A significant diastema may cause a problem with eating.
HOW IS DIASTEMA DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis is usually done by a dentist who will carry out a physical examination of the teeth and gums as well as the grooves and muscle attachment of the lower and upper jaw in order to find the underlying cause of the gaps created.
HOW IS DIASTEMA TREATED?
Diastema usually causes no complications to the dental health, but many people choose diastema closure for cosmetic purposes. There are several types of diastema treatment available today:
• Dental Braces
• Removable Dental Braces
• Cosmetic Dentistry
• Missing Tooth Replacement
• Dental Surgery
DID YOU KNOW?
In some cases, a permanent retainer or a wire is glued at the back of the teeth to keep the teeth together.
