  • Intraoral soft tissue structure
  • Chronic periodontal disease
  • Tongue thrusting/reverse swallowing
  • Thumb sucking

Does Teeth Spacing Worsen with Age?

No matter how much we ignore this fact, but teeth spacing can worsen with age. Many people experience a slight widening of the spaces between the teeth as the years pass, due to the natural shrinking of the jawbone. Other factors, such as misaligned teeth, habits like thumb-sucking, and missing teeth, can also lead to a wider spacing. Additionally, as one ages and their gums start to recede, there can be an increase in the size of existing spaces. Fortunately, there are ways to minimize or even eliminate the issue with braces, retainers, and Clear Aligner treatments.

How long does it take to fix teeth spacing?

Teeth spacing treatment takes approximately 6 to 12 months depending on the complexity of the case. Every patient is different, so the exact treatment time could vary slightly beyond the stated range. During this time period, patients can expect visits every 4 to 8 weeks to re-measure, adjust, and monitor progress. Our team of orthodontists specializes in customizing treatment according to the needs of the patients. To ensure that our patients achieve the best possible results, we continually adjust them to accommodate the changing needs of patients throughout their treatment.
