Closure closure

Closure (or narrowing) of a widening gap between the upper front teeth

A narrow 1-2 mm gap between the upper front teeth (anterior midline diastema) is considered a sign of beauty (“kazigo”) in many societies and this is usually left unclosed in the majority of the people.

However for those who have a thick strip of tissue between the upper front teeth (
an active labial frenulum) this will cause a continous widening of this gap.

This often leaves an unsightly gap and affects the beauty of your smile.

If the widening of the gap is being caused by an active labial frenulum pushing the teeth aside, you will be advised on how this can be surgically remedied. The space closure (or narrowing) is usually completed by a short phase of treatment either with holding wires or with braces as required. The space between your front teeth can be completely closed if you so wish. Alternatively we can narrow it to exactly how you want it.

"I had this annoying on and off toothache for like six months but I also had this strong fear of the dentist. One of my friends who had been to Neptune dental clinic encouraged me to go there. The dentist told me the tooth was severely damaged and had to be removed, unfortunately. The dentist was very gentle and kept pausing to check whether I was okay. I was expecting a lot of pain but I was surprised. After the numbing injection at the beginning, I did not feel any pain during the extraction. Thank you Dr. Billy"
