Asparism, also known as diastema, is a space or gap between two teeth. Most commonly, a diastema occurs between two upper incisors, but it can occur between any teeth.

Sparsity can result from a variety of causes, such as:

  1. Imbalance between the size of the teeth and the size of the jaw: When the teeth are too small compared to the jaw, stomata can occur.
  2. Improper habits, such as thumb sucking: Thumb-sucking by children can lead to spacing, as this habit can put pressure on the teeth, causing them to separate.
  3. Improper position of the interdental node: The interdental node is a small fold of skin that extends from the upper lip to the gums between the two upper incisors. If it is too large, it can interfere with closing the gap between the teeth.
  4. Improper movement of the tongue while speaking: This phenomenon is called improper tongue function and can lead to sparseness.
