Examination: You will need to be examined locally by a dentist to determine the cause of the diastemas. It could be your bite, or it could be periodontal disease. So hard to say for sure without an exam. Improper thrusting of your tongue can contribute. Please make an appointment.

Number of Reasons: The most frequent causes are: periodontal (gum) disease, missing teeth or habit of sucking objects. During dental examination, a dentist can determine the reason why you are developing any spaces between your teeth and present the treatment options.
