Tooth, Natal

Objective: Erupted tooth or teeth at birth


This is not to be confused with apical dental cysts. Natal teeth most often involve lower central incisors, less often upper central incisors, and rarely first primary molars. Natal teeth occur about once in 3,000 births and are particularly common among some native (First Nation) groups of North America [Mok and Suina, [1986]].
