Treatment for Diastema

Posted on 4/26/2021 by Office
Diastema is a common dental condition in which a person has gaps or spaces in their teeth. While it isn't really a harmful condition, it can have adverse effects on a person's self-confidence and self-esteem levels. People that do have this condition often resort to treatment methods to fix the issue by getting the gaps removed from the teeth. Treatment for diastema isn't a necessity unless the gap has resulted from a loss of primary teeth or due to a mismatch in the size of a person's jawbone in relation to the teeth. Take a look at the possible treatment options for diastema that you can look into if you have gaps in your teeth. Braces One of the most common options for diastema that we suggest at Grove Street Family Dentistry are braces. Braces help remove gaps from the teeth by exerting pressure, eventually closing the gap over time. Dental Implants If you have gaps due to missing teeth, you might have to get extensive dental work done, such as dental implants. This treatment option involves the use of metal screws that are inserted in the jawbone to attach the replacement teeth. Surgery A common cause of diastema is an oversized labial frenum, which requires a surgical procedure called a frenectomy. This procedure basically helps remove the excess in an attempt to close the gap or space in your teeth. Dental Bonding or Veneers If the gaps in your teeth are due to you having smaller teeth, the best treatment option is dental bonding or veneers. Veneers are basically custom-made porcelain pieces that are attached to the surface of the teeth, and they are very thin in appearance. Dental bonding, on the other hand, is a process that includes the use of resin on the teeth surface, which is then hardened with the help of a light source. If you suffer from diastema and are looking for possible treatment options, contact us at Grove Street Family Dentistry where Tania Tran, DMD and will help fix the gaps in your teeth....
