Gapped Teeth?

A gap between teeth is referred to as a diastema and involves the space between the front two teeth. This is a relatively common occurrence and usually has no cause for concern. Sometimes, a gap may signify existing or possible future dental problems such as:

  • Crowding
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Gum disease

The causes of gapped teeth vary from genetics to lifestyle factors and include underlying dental problems so they should always be checked by a dentist who can determine if treatment is necessary.
