Only a dentist or orthodontist can determine if you need any type of correction. If you are worried about gaps or teeth moving, schedule an appointment with your dentist or call us. After a diagnostic exam that includes a full medical and dental history, clinical exam and X-rays of your mouth, we will be able to determine whether you need any intervention or treatment for your smile.
Spacing or gaps are one of the symptoms that make you a candidate for orthodontic treatment. While it may require some sort of intervention to fix, it does not necessarily require braces. Each patient’s mouth is different, so only an examination will tell you exactly what you need to do to fix the spacing of your teeth. Early intervention is key. The smaller the gap the easier it is to fix. If you wait several months, the gap may become larger and require more complex treatment with a longer treatment time.
Retainers, braces, or Invisalign aligners are all options for consideration. To see what option may work best for you, call us today to schedule your initial appointment.
