Diastema, dal greco intervallo, è lo spazio che c’è tra i due denti vicini, generalmente gli incisivi superiori. Difetto per alcuni, segno di bellezza per altri, i dents du bonheur (denti della fortuna) hanno diverse cause che vanno da quelle fisiologiche (arcata dentale troppo grande e denti troppo piccoli da riempire gli spazzi o la presenza di frenuli labiali, cioè l’attaccamento fibroso del labbro alla gengiva), quelle meccaniche (suzione del pollice prolungato nel tempo, spinta incontrollata della lingua contro i denti), a quelle ereditarie. A queste si possono aggiungere altri fattori quali tumori o cisti tra i denti che impediscono la chiusura dello spazio; o labbro flaccido, cioè un labbro che non fornisce abbastanza sostegno per contenere i denti.#beauty #imperfection #diastema #laurenhutton #smile #diastemaclosure #demtistrylife

Her daughter stated that Judi was very proud of being on this cover: ‘It meant an awful lot to her. This age thing, I think, affects very much how she feels about herself and this gave her just that little boost of confidence to make her go, “Oh, maybe I’m still OK.”

Judi is currently self-isolating, due to Covid-19. She is optimistic and hopes this situation brings a great deal of kindness among people.
