Teeth spaces cause various problems, which affects their aesthetic appearance, their smile, the position of the teeth, and the integrity of the gums in general, and neglecting to treat the spaces between the teeth will lead to their curvature or deviation, which may lead to tooth loss later.
Several factors that cause teeth spaces:
1 / Congenital factors
2 / pathological factors
– Tooth decay that occurs as a result of the accumulation of food debris between the teeth, which causes erosion of the tooth nerve, so the teeth are eroded and reduce their size, leaving a space.
– Severe gum infections because they cause erosion of tooth bones, which leads to their small size.
-Hormonal disorders that change the size of the jaw.
– Tongue enlarges and friction with teeth, causing increased mobility.
In these cases, we resort to first treating the cause of the spaces between the teeth and then undergoing the installation of orthodontics.
What is orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the best solution to the problem of dental spaces, especially if there are several voids in multiple places inside the mouth, and orthodontics is to improve the appearance of the teeth and their functional performance by moving them or modifying their straightness, and orthodontics distributes the pressure force generated by the occlusion of the teeth on all the teeth. Which in turn improves the general health of the teeth, gums, and jaw joints.
