You may have seen this online already. It is the photo of a newborn baby with matured teeth which has gone viral online. People are wondering how a newborn baby developed such dentition.
According to a Health organisation, these kind of teeth are called natal teeth which are relatively rare.
About 15 percent of babies born with teeth have close family members that had natal teeth when they were born, too. These include siblings and parents.
While there are conflicting studies on the role of gender and natal teeth, females seem to be more likely to be born with teeth than males.
Malnutrition during pregnancy is another possible risk factor
