What Are Gapped Teeth?

Tooth gaps are areas of extra space in between two or more teeth. This dental issue is known medically as a diastema. While the spaces between teeth are often minimal, gaps can also be quite large and noticeable. A variety of factors can potentially contribute to the creation of gaps, including genetics that determine the size of a patient’s jawbone and the relative size of their teeth. Other gaps are triggered by bad childhood habits, like thumb sucking, or by dental conditions like gum disease. 

It is important to fix gapped teeth, especially when they are prominent, embarrassing, or the result of gum disease. If not fixed, gaps can cause teeth crowding that lead to severe misalignment.

Can Invisalign Fix Gaps?

Invisalign clear aligners are an effective treatment option for fixing and closing gaps in teeth, even those located between front teeth. During your initial consultation, our team will thoroughly examine your teeth using various imaging techniques, including a 3D digital scanner, to create 3D impressions of your teeth. This process helps your dentist determine if Invisalign treatment is the most suitable option for addressing your teeth gap. 

By choosing Invisalign clear aligners for gaps, you will experience a variety of distinct benefits:

  • Personalized treatment
  • Enhanced self-esteem
  • Better oral hygiene
  • Comfortable and discreet treatment

How Invisalign Works for Gaps

The Invisalign procedure uses clear aligners that gradually push gapped teeth into their proper position. Every one to two weeks, you will begin using new aligner trays. At the end of this process, all teeth are moved into proper alignment, and the gap will either be greatly reduced or completely resolved. Because the trays contact each tooth, Invisalign treats gaps in the front teeth while improving spacing throughout your mouth.  

The duration of your Invisalign treatment depends on the severity of the gap. Your dentist will discuss the total number of aligners you will need to correct this issue. Smaller gaps may take a few months to close, while larger gaps could take up to 18 months to treat.
