Causes of A Tooth Gap: Diastema Facts

by
Diastema means a gap between teeth; often the gap appears between your two front upper teeth. There can be genetic or medical reasons for diastema to occur, meaning it can run in the family, or you may have certain conditions that make it more likely. Often, there’s no need for treatment, so if you don’t mind the gap, that’s okay. If diastema is an issue for you, there are many treatments available that can eliminate or minimize it.
