A very common condition, widely spaced teeth usually occurs because of continued growth of the jaw bone. As one grows and develops, temporary widening of adult teeth is very normal. But in certain cases widely spaced teeth may even be the sign of a disease. Some causes for widely spaced teeth are acromegaly, Ellis-van creveld syndrome, mouth injury, Morquio syndrome, gum disease, sanfilippo syndrome, Hay-wells syndrome, Zunich-kaye syndrome and tooth shifting. As a corrective measure doctors generally recommend braces for a certain period of time. Other type of treatments also include crown and bridge restoration along with implants, which effectively improve appearance and teeth function.
