Teeth Gap Bands

Smile at Your Best!

Home Remedy: A Quick Fix with Tooth Bands

Oral care and dental visits are supposedly what it takes to have perfect teeth with a bright and infectious smile. But what if your bright smile isn’t that perfect and neither annual dental visits, nor oral care is enough of a fix? I am referring to gaps in between teeth or that wide space on your front teeth.

What is gap between teeth?

Also known as diastema, a teeth gap is a simple orthodontic condition that is caused by the action of the labial frenulum (the tissue around the lip) causing high mucosal attachment and less attached keratinized tissue. It is that wide open space in between teeth, which most often requires people to wear braces.

Braces: Conventional Teeth Gap Treatment

Remember those movies with geeks on them? Most geeks have braces and big rimmed eyeglasses in most of these movies, contributing to the social stigma of associating braces to being geeky and gawky. This has a negative impact to people who suffer this condition. First, braces are expensive and will use up part of your savings for college. Second, braces appear ugly (as what society dictates), which lowers confidence and self-esteem. Third, it is uncomfortable and people have to suffer bouts of pain or sensitivity. Fourth, wearing braces take up to two years and another year for retainers, which means you have to have frequent dental visits and more expenses mounting up.

Braces indeed are not a very pleasant or affordable fix for teeth gaps. I bet you are wishing for a quick fix that does not jeopardize your funds for college. Now, your wish is granted, check it out.

Tooth Bands: Alternative to Braces

Do you want to know how to fix teeth at home? Nope, you are not getting your dentist to visit you at home. In fact, it does not really require you to see a dentist. Teeth gaps can be easily remedied using tooth bands or oral bands.

Oral bands are synthetic bands that put gradual pressure to the teeth and slowly bring the gap to a close. It is worn mostly all throughout the night before going to sleep and remove upon waking up.

The oral bands are available online and are easy to use. You can close your gap in as short as one to two months or approximately 60 days. They are affordable with the cheapest being $27 for 100 bands at Orthofill.

Tooth bands are the quick fix you have been looking for that you can do at home and without the aid of dental professionals. All you have to do is follow the instruction and gaps will be closed in no time.

    The mentioned concept of tooth bands is like amazing, I am working for a big dental hospital in India for last more than 4 years but never heard of such products, instead they use fillings or tooth replacement and other techniques

    Nice, really innovative

      Yeah,.. really amazing.. Aside from effective, it is also very cheap which is good for those who can’t afford to buy braces and pay for fillings.. May you have a great day, Andrew.. :)

    I’m from India & I know its an online purchase but I don’t have a credit card. But I can guarantee I can pay in cash on delivery. So can oral bands help me with that?
