Diagnosis and Management of Natal and Neonatal Teeth: Case Report of Three Newborns

Olivia Kérourédan et al. J Dent Child (Chic).

Abstract

Natal and neonatal teeth are rare features that can lead to various issues, from traumatic injuries and feeding difficulties to more severe problems, such as risk of aspiration due to excessive mobility of teeth. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the diagnosis and management of natal and neonatal teeth, and describe three cases of newborns with natal teeth. Decision processes and management are detailed regarding the specificity of each case. Periodic follow-up is recommended to maintain oral health and prevent any issues related to premature loss or eruption of primary teeth. A close collaboration between pediatricians and dentists should be considered in order to allow early diagnosis and efficient treatment.
