Diastema is a space between two permanent teeth, typically the upper central incisors (front teeth).

Baby teeth have gaps called primate spaces. These are normal and necessary to allow enough room for the permanent teeth to come in.

The most common cause of diastema in adult teeth is malocclusion, or poor fit between the teeth of the upper and lower jaws. This usually can be corrected with orthodontics.

Another common cause of diastema is a short labial frenum. The labial frenum is found at the mid line inside the upper lip, and it is a flap of mucosa and connective tissue that holds the upper lip close to the teeth. If this tissue is short and too tight, it can result in the diastema. This problem can usually be corrected with a minor surgical procedure called a labial frenectomy. This is sometimes done in conjunction with orthodontics to move the teeth together.

It's called a diastema.GAPspaced teethThe technical term for space between permanent teeth is 'diastema.' The technical term for space between primary teeth is 'primate space.'


No humans do not have the largest diastema amongst the primate. Actually we have the smallest diastema compared to other primates such as gorillas, chimps, and orangutans. The reason being is because I learned in my bio class that in order for those apes to have fairly large canine teeth which is not only used for eating but also mainly for defending themselves they need to have a huge gap in between the incisors and canine teeth.


Midline Diastema is the dental term for the gap.


A game in your front teeth is usually referred to as a diastema. The term is most commonly applied to an open space between the upper front teeth (upper incisors). The best way to fix it is to wear orthodontic braces or to use a teeth gap band called Orthofill which seems to work for many people. technically known as a midline diastema ____________ It's called diastema. You can fix diastema or teeth gap with non latex elastic bands from oralband.com. It costs only $19.99. It closes gap in less than a month. It closed my gap in 3 weeks.

The gap between the front teeth is called a diastema. The scientific name is diastema. If it is big, it can only cause aesthetic problems, and it can get fixed by many ways in dentistry (Orthodontics, bondings, veneers). But if it is small, some people just like having it, and it is ok.


it means she has interdental space greater than normal... she has diastema greater than normal


Yes, it is different to a cows as cows have one instead of top fron teeth, horses have them between the incisors and the premolars.


The frenum or frenulum linguae is the band of tissue beneath the tongue. The frenulum labii superioris is the band of tissue behind your upper lip. Neither have anything to do with the gap between your central incisors, which is called diastema or gap-tooth. The gap is probably genetic in most cases.


The dental form in which the upper canines are sharpened against the lower third premolars when the jaws are opened and closed. It is in which the upper canine fits in a space (or diastema). Examples of animals with this are Old World monkeys & apes.


It is found at the midline inside the upper lip. It is a flap of mucosa and connective tissue that holds the teeth close to the teeth. When there is an overgrowth and becomes large, it can pass between the two front upper teeth and cause a diastema.


It would allow food to be pushed between the upper and lower jaw through the gap, to be stored briefly in the cheek. Thus it is possible for the animal to eat more food without stopping to chew and swallow each mouthful.
