How to close interdental spaces (spaced teeth, diastema) (tooth gaps)?

If there is a gap between the teeth in adults, this is abnormal and treatment is necessary, especially for aesthetic reasons. Gaps are often normal during the deciduous or mixed dentition period. People who have completed puberty and have all their permanent teeth erupted should not have gaps between teeth. In a healthy mouth, teeth are side by side and in contact. There are two basic treatment concepts that can be used in the treatment of people with spaced teeth. The first one is to bring the teeth together by moving them with orthodontic treatment, and the second concept is to close the gaps between the teeth using aesthetic materials.

Can spaced teeth be closed with orthodontic treatment?

The answer to this question is both yes and no. Gaps between teeth can often be closed with orthodontic treatment, but if there is a size mismatch between the teeth, the gaps cannot be closed with orthodontic treatment.
