Orthodontic Treatments for Tooth Gaps

Surveys reveal that the first thing people notice about you is your smile. If you’re not proud of your smile because your two front teeth are far apart, your orthodontist in 33062 can close that gap for you. A tooth gap also known as diastema is common among American adults.  

It’s caused by various factors such as tooth extraction, facial trauma, or injury. In some cases, it’s just how their teeth erupted.  

There are different methods of closing tooth gaps. Ask your orthodontist about the options that suit your condition best.  

How Do Orthodontists Close Tooth Gaps?

 Traditional Metal Braces

 The most common and the most talked-about treatment for fixing tooth gaps are traditional metal braces. They are by far the oldest method but since they are effective in treating mild to severe orthodontic issues, braces are still being offered today.  

The appliance consists of metal brackets and stainless steel wires that pull and move your teeth until they are properly aligned.  

You will experience some discomfort during adjustments. The discomfort is from the pressure exerted on your teeth. After a couple of days, you will get used to them and the pain will slowly subside.  

Lingual Braces

Another popular option for closing tooth gaps is lingual braces. They are not as popular as metal braces because they are a bit pricey. Nevertheless, they still work as effectively as traditional metal braces. The only problem with lingual braces is they are challenging to clean.  

Instead of placing the brackets on the front side of your teeth, your orthodontist will place them on the sides to hide them.  

The pressure on your teeth is the same except that you don’t have to deal with rough brackets and wires.
