Types of Diestema and Treatment Options

Diestema Türleri Ve Tedavi Seçenekleri

Our smile is an important way of expressing ourselves. But some people describe their smile with gaps between the teeth, or “diestema.” Diestema is a general term that refers to unwanted gaps between teeth. In this article, we will examine the types of diestema and how these problems can be treated.

Orthodontic Diestema:

Orthodontic diestema occurs when gaps between teeth are usually caused by an underlying jaw structure problem. These types of diestemas may require orthodontic treatment to align the teeth correctly. They are corrected with methods such as brackets, wire therapy or transparent plates.

Discrete Diestema:

Discrete diestemas occur when spaces between teeth occur when the teeth are generally aligned normally. This type of diestema is usually due to genetic factors or tooth structure. Due to aesthetic concerns, many people may wish to correct discrete diestemas. In this case, methods such as braces treatment or aesthetic filling can be used.

Natural Diestema:

Some people see the space between their teeth as an aesthetic feature and prefer to preserve these spaces, called “natural diestema”. Some particularly famous personalities have adopted such diestemas as part of their smiles.

  • Diestema Treatment Options: Treatment of diestemas may vary depending on the type and the patient’s preferences. Here are common diestema treatment options:
  • Orthodontic Treatment: Orthodontic diestemas can be treated with devices such as braces or clear aligners to straighten the teeth.
  • Aesthetic Fillings: Separate diestemas can be closed with aesthetic fillings. These fillings fill the space between teeth and provide a natural appearance.
  • Porcelain Laminates or Veneers: These thin porcelain veneers can be used to reshape the front surface of the teeth and hide gaps.
  • Implants: If there are missing teeth due to diestema, implants may be an option to treat tooth loss and restore the smile.
  • Preserving Natural Diestema: Some people prefer to preserve their natural diestema. In this case, the dentist can shape the teeth appropriately to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result.

Diestemas are different for each individual and can be treated based on personal preference. Your dentist will help you determine the most appropriate treatment option for you.
