Stomatological clinical case
The case of a newborn with a gingival mass corresponding to a natal tooth is reported. In this rare and idiopathic disorder, teeth are present at birth. When they show increased mobility and/or complications are present (feeding difficulties, laceration of the mother`s nipples), teeth should be extracted.
