Baby born with 7 teeth

Baby Megan Andrews amazed doctors and family by being born with teeth. She is now just under two weeks old and she has already had two dental appointments, reports the Brighton Argus.

Mum Claire Slimming, 20, knew nothing of the phenomenon until a midwife gave Megan a check an hour after she came into the world. Claire, from Worthing, said: “The midwife counted Megan’s ten fingers and toes and then looked and put a finger inside her mouth and was astonished when she counted seven teeth.

“Her face said it all - she was shocked.”Megan had her first dental appointment at the age of just one day at the Maxio-facial unit at Worthing Hospital.

Claire said: “They gently took out four of the teeth because they were falling out and might have choked her. She didn’t feel a thing and slept through the whole process. “Megan still has one tiny tooth in front and two at the back and they are pretty-well anchored in. They said they would have to give her anaesthetic to remove them but we decided against that. I couldn’t put her through it.”
