Rights and Permissions

Natal teeth are relatively uncommon, appearing in about one in every 2000 to 3000 births. It is underreported because in some cultures great fear and negativity is associated with natal teeth. Natal teeth generally develop on the lower gum, where the central incisor teeth will appear. About 70% of natal/neonatal teeth are firmly fixed but some subsequently become loose. Similarly a small number of initially loose teeth become fixed.
