The presence of spaces between the teeth in children is normal as part of the growth process as they are necessary for the emergence of permanent teeth, which will replace them. Permanent teeth are larger in size and more in number, and as such will require more space. However, the presence of these spaces may occur even after the emergence of all permanent teeth in the jaws.
There are several reasons which include:
The closing of spaces is often determined by the doctor at the clinic after examining the references for each specific treatment method. Some cases are treated with orthodontics if, for example, the cause of these gaps is the presence of an extra tooth or a buried tooth or a lack of eruption, causing a gap. Ceramic shells are also used by placing ceramic objects on the faces of the teeth, closing those spaces and giving an aesthetic and natural appearance of the teeth. Also white cosmetic fillings are used if the space is too small and does not require a ceramic or ceramic object.
