Gaps In Teeth

Gaps in the teeth are sometimes referred to as diastema. This is a common problem which can greatly affect your self-confidence and make you feel anxious about laughing or smiling as you normally would. This concern may even indicate an underlying health issue which could require further attention.

Our practice offers a range of bespoke options if you wish to close a gap in your teeth, depending on the cause, size, location and your individual wishes.

About this Condition

Gaps in the teeth can be the result of many different causes. In some cases, gaps in the teeth can indicate gum disease, which can worsen if it is not assessed and treated properly. Gum disease can lead to discomfort and pain, particularly while eating. If untreated, gum disease could cause wider gaps and the loosening or even the loss of teeth. It can also spread and affect other elements of your health. If this turns out to be the case, our expert team can help cure the underlying disease through treatment of the gums and then close the gap if required.

We also help to educate on practising better dental hygiene and provide regular checkups and deep cleanings to keep your teeth healthy and strong. Common causes for gaps in the teeth include: 

  •     Missing teeth
  •     An overgrowth of gum tissue
  •     Small teeth in relation to the jaw
  •     Habits, such as thumb sucking
  •     Poor positioning of the tongue while swallowing

Our trained clinicians carry out a thorough consultation to assess the cause and extent of the gap. We can then offer you many different options depending on your expected outcome, including: 

  •     Dental implants
  •     Bridges
  •     Invisalign
  •     Fixed STO

With our care and an open discussion, our team can work with you to provide a strong and sparkling set of teeth, helping you regain your confidence and smile fully again.

The team at Square Mile Dental Centre are outstanding. Under Dr. Sanjay and Dr. Nikhil Sethi's excellent care, my gum condition is now greatly improved and my confidence has returned. Dr Elaine Mo and Dental Nurse, Shazna Begum have provided highly skilled, encouraging and patient support with teeth straightening using invisalign. I can't recommend this team highly enough.
