A Toothful Story #Gallery57Dental #babyteeth

This newborn was born with chompers! Alyssa Bailey came into the world with ten fingers, ten toes AND two bottom front teeth! It doesn’t happen often. About one in every 2,000 to 3,000 babies are born with fully formed teeth.

Sounds like a nursing mother’s nightmare? Have no fear. Typically the doctor will remove or shave them down as soon as possible to avoid problems with breast-feeding and prevent the baby from cutting its tongue. Since they are an extra set, her baby teeth should grow in normally.
