Diastema:  A space or gap between two teeth. It appears most often between the two upper front teeth and can be seen in some races more than others.However, gaps can also occur between any two teeth in the mouth.A mis-match between the size of our  jaw bones and the size of our teeth can cause either extra space, also called diastema between teeth or crowding of teeth. If the size of the teeth is too small for the jaw bone, spaces ( diastema ) between the teeth will occur. If the teeth are larger than normal for the jaw, teeth will be crowded.( Too may teethfor that space ).


Sometimes some teeth are missing or undersized like the upper lateral tooth. This happens most often with the upper lateral incisors ( the second tooth from the front ). That can cause the upper central incisors to develop a space and the lateral tooth that will look like a peg shape tooth.

A diastema also can be caused by an oversized labial frenum which is the soft tissue pulling the lips forward. The labial frenum is the piece of tissue that normally extends from the inside of your upper lip to the gum just above your two upper front teeth and has an influence on the placing of the incisors. In some instances, the labial frenum continues to grow more and bigger and passes between the two front teeth. If this mishap happens, it blocks the natural closing of the space between the front two teeth, causing a diastema.
