Sherin C Jose, K Korath Abraham, Ektah Khosla

Abstract


Natal and neonatal teeth are those which are present in the oral cavity at the time of birth and within thirty days of birth. They are likely to be associated with traumatic sublingual ulceration caused to the suckling as well as movements of the tongue. The treatment of choice is mostly conservative whenever possible. The purpose of this report is to present a case of traumatic sublingual ulceration in a twenty days old baby. The lesion resolved soon after the offending tooth was removed.
