A gap between teeth can be the result of genetics or lifestyle. Some gaps are harmless but other gaps can cause dental problems:
– A large gap between the front two teeth can cause crowding of the surrounding teeth, resulting in increased risk of decay and jaw pain.
– If teeth start to develop new gaps this could be a sign of gum disease.
– Your dentist can advise whether gapping is a problem or not.
“Depending on your unique smile, gapped teeth may not be an orthodontic concern, although for some, they can be a cosmetic one.”
