Gaps & Spaces Between Teeth
Spaces or gaps between two teeth are known to dentists as diastema. Diastema appears most often between the two upper front teeth, however, gaps can occur between any two teeth.
There are many reasons why people have gaps between their teeth. These include;
• A mismatch of the jaw bone size and the size of the teeth
• Teeth are too small for the jaw bone
• Excess gum tissue
