What kind of dental problems can gap teeth cause?

The bite can become misaligned due to the gap not allowing enough room for the other teeth to grow in properly. A misaligned bite can cause jaw pain and difficulty eating. People in NYC with a gap between their two front teeth may experience low self-esteem and embarrassment when speaking and smiling.

How to Prevent Gapped Teeth

Patients often spend years without having a gap than one day; they notice the gap forming. This problem is usually caused by gum disease that has a negative impact on the gum tissue and bone. Patients can prevent their teeth from becoming gapped due to gum disease by brushing, flossing and using mouthwash on a daily basis. Preventing plaque and tartar buildup and keeping the mouth clean helps prevent gum disease from developing.

Another common reason children have gapped teeth is due to long term thumb sucking. The pressure that occurs against the two front teeth often causes them to gap. Preventing children from sucking their thumb will help lower the risk of gapped teeth.
