This condition is experienced by Caulfield (25 years) during childbirth daughter named Faye Armstrong. When she was born with two white gaps in the gum bottom, and the next day while nursing the mother feels the pain and see the two front teeth at the gum bottom.
“Midwife told me that this is really rare. Sometimes the baby is born not only with buds and perfect teeth that grow like Faye,” Caulfield said,Wednesday (08/12/2010).
She was born three weeks early at Ormskirk Hospital, Lancashire. This condition is fairly rare, because this incident occurred about 1 in 2,000 births with one or two teeth.
Generally the teeth on the new baby will come when aged between 6 months to 1 year and is the milk incisors or teeth. The first tooth appears is four front teeth on the top and bottom that allows you to cut or bite of food.
As quoted from NYTimes, teeth that have emerged when the baby is born is called the ‘natal teeth, generally develops in the gums below, in which the central incisor appears. It has a small root structure and attached to the tip of the gum by soft tissue.If the incorrect placement can cause irritation, injury to the baby’s tongue when nursing and cause a sense uncomfortable or pain in breastfeeding mothers.
Most of the events the appearance of teeth when the baby is born is not related to medical conditions. However, there are also some conditions that cause natal teeth, namely:
1. An isolated abnormality (isolated anomaly), is the most common cause.
2. Ellis-van syndrome Crevelnd, which is an inherited disorder with multiple forms of abnormalities and dwarfism.
3. Hallerman-Streiff Syndrome, a condition which affects the height, head shape and hair growth.
4. Pierre Robin Syndrome, the condition appears at birth marked by a very small lower jaw (micrognathia), the tongue tends to backward and downward (glossoptosis) and there is a gap in the soft palate.
5. Soto’s Syndrome, which is a rare genetic disorder characterized by excessive physical growth during the first 2-3 years of life.
Parents should keep the teeth to keep them clean by wiping the gums and teeth using a soft clean cloth. Also make sure the baby’s gums and tongue did not get injured due to the tooth. But if the baby is experiencing pain in the tongue or mouth, consult a physician.
