Do your have gap in between your teeth ? Here's why

The space between two front teeth in upper jaw is termed as midline diastema. Diastema means 'interval' in Greek.

When the space (or gap) becomes greater than 0.5mm between the middle-front two teeth in the upper jaw- it is called midline diastema. 

One may be self-conscious about having a space between their teeth. However, a diastema also can affect speech especially “s” and “th’.

In France, the teeth present on both sides of spacing are called as Dents Du Bonheur or ”Lucky teeth”!

Cheek Dimples

Found on both sides of the mouth for some of us, cheek dimples are considered attractive and ‘genetically dominant’. Around 37 percent of the population are having cheek dimples (in a study of 2300 people).

Cheek dimples are caused by a change in a particular facial muscle called zygomaticus major. Genetics too play an important part for a face to have dimples, which can develop over a lifetime and also disappear.
