Gap tooth is a disorder called DIASTEMA. Dr Penking.

A twitter Influencer, medical doctor, creative writer and Wikipedia editor by name Dr Jeremiah PenKing Jackson has been running what I will call “Do you know” series on his Facebook. All he does during this series is to reveal some medical secrets which most persons don’t know about.

Must of which he calls disorder by many thinks it’s a gift.

One is GapTooth and he boldly called it a disorder but this didn’t go well with many and obviously brought some ill comments but Dr didn’t mind as he promised to disclose other disorders.. Lol

Below is what he wrote;

The medical name for gaptooth is diastema (plural diastemata). It is a space or gap between two teeth. Diastemata are primarily caused by IMBALANCE in the RELATIONSHIP between the jaw and the size of teeth.

If the labial frenulum (lip tissue) pulls, it can also push the teeth apart and cause a diastema between the center of the two front teeth.

It happens when there is an unequal relationship between the size of the teeth and the jaw. Diastema is sometimes caused or exacerbated by the action of a labial frenulum (the tissue connecting the lip to the gum), causing high mucosal attachment and less attached keratinized tissue. This is more prone to recession or by tongue thrusting, which can push the teeth apart.

Treatment

  1. Determining the cause of the diastema, then treat the cause.
  2. Diastema treatment options can differ from one patient to another, but generally it is treated by orthodontics, or composite fillings, or a combination of veneers or crowns.
