  • The gap in front teeth can be due to some gum problem or because of decay in teeth. Because of gum problem bone resorption happens and teeth movement is there causing the gap. This is called pathological migration. Sometimes gap can be there because of decay. It is difficult to give dianosis in such cases without seeing clinically. You should visit a dentist and ge the diagnois made. Till then try to maintain very good oral hygiene. It will help you.
