Insanely Bad Teeth and More Incredible Mutations

1. Bad Teeth… Okay, Really Bad Teeth

One genetic issue that can affect one’s pearly whites is supernumerary teeth. That’s when more than the correct number of teeth develop. This condition can be treated, but it will call for frequent visits to a very good dentist or oral surgeon. Treatments that can be used include tooth extraction of supernumerary teeth or bonding of an attachment and gold chain at the time of surgery.



The choice of management method depends on the presentation of the extra teeth and available space within the arch. Complex dentistry can greatly improve the appearance and function of the teeth of people suffering from this condition.
