Orthodontic Treatment – Spacing (Diastema)
‘Diastema’ refers to the gap between two front teeth and it occurs when there are missing teeth or the jaw is too big than required. It can be easily treated with orthodontics.
A gap between the two front teeth can be easily closed through orthodontics and fixated with a fixed retainer, glued behind the teeth, to prevent the gap from forming again after treatment. Surrounding structures and distance of the gap is carefully analysed prior to complex treatment such as prosthodontics, partial or upper/lower orthodontic treatment, if required.
Cases that may require orthodontic treatment due to spacing:
- Gaps between teeth due to small size of existing teeth
- Gaps between teeth due to missing teeth
- Gaps between teeth due to larger jaw size than required
- Gaps between teeth due to protrusion of front teeth
Is orthodontic treatment necessary for spacing?
Without the required treatment, it is highly likely to have food stuck in between the gaps of teeth, leading to tooth decay or gum inflammation, if oral hygiene is not maintained. Also, a space between the front teeth may not be desired aesthetically, hence the need for treatment. In growing children/teenagers, it may lead to psychological stress and loss of confidence, affecting their character.

Resin-based veneers can deliver immediate aesthetic results compared orthodontics.
A gap in the front teeth can easily be improved through orthodontic treatment. However, resin-based veneers can also solve the problem. With orthodontics, other gaps may form as a result of closing the front gap, which prolongs the treatment period. Considering the degree of the gap and overall alignment of the upper and lower teeth, resin-based veneers may deliver a satisfactory and instantaneous result compared to orthodontics.
