Natal Teeth in a 2 day old newborn.
Natal teeth are teeth that are already present at the time of birth. They are different from neonatal teeth, which pop through during the first 30 days after birth.
This case is relatively uncommon, appearing in about one in every 2500 births. Most cases are isolated, but they can be associated with certain syndromes, like Ellis-Van Creveld, Hallermann-Streiff, Pierre Robin and Soto Syndromes.

Natal teeth have weak root structure and are attached to the end of the gum by soft tissue and are often wobbly.
They may cause irritation or injury to the infant's tongue and can be uncomfortable to a nursing mother.
Frequently, natal teeth are removed shortly after birth while the newborn is still in the hospital, especially if the tooth is loose representing aspiration risk.
