Hello Lybrate user, gap in between teeth arises due to loss of bone surrounding the tooth. This commonly occurs in a condition called periodontitis
(inflammation of structures supporting teeth like gums). By following certain protocols, we can stop this increase in gap. Firstly you find a periodontist
(specialist for treating infection
in structures supporting teeth) and give him a visit. Im sure he will suggest you a course of antibiotic with mouth wash followed by ultrasonic cleaning of teeth surface. Also in many systemic diseases like diabetes
, the bone supporting the tooth structure are easily lost. You can check your blood sugar
level both fasting and post prandial
. Hope this helps.
