Aligner Solutions for a Gappy Smile
Dental spacing, which is the opposite of crowding, occurs when there is excess room in your mouth, causing teeth to spread out.1 Your teeth may shift to fill the available space, leaving gaps between.
Causes of Spacing
Usually, spacing occurs because your teeth are smaller than they should be and don’t fill the available space in your mouth. Some other causes of spacing may include:1
- Missing teeth
- Impacted teeth
- Abnormal tissue attachments
- Protruding teeth
Your teeth may continue to shift in your mouth until you find a proper solution for the gaps.
Side Effects Of Spacing
Spacing has many negative side effects similar to other malocclusions, including:1
- Improper tooth function
- Discomfort when chewing
- Gum issues
We recommend Spark Aligners to fix dental spaces without braces.*
