AIM: The purpose of this systematic review was to identify and review the literature concerning natal and neonatal teeth.
STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: The literature search was conducted using several databases. Specific terms were used in the search, which includes articles from 1950 to 2011, supplementary searching by hand was also used. Relevant studies were selected according to predetermined inclusion criteria.
RESULTS: Studies meeting the inclusion criteria were only found with regards to prevalence and management of natal and neonatal teeth. Prevalence ranged from near 0 to 1:10 while extraction or maintenance of teeth comprised the management options.
CONCLUSION: There is significant need for further research, under specific scientific preconditions, to provide an evidence-based treatment for patients and to determine the prevalence of natal and neonatal teeth more precisely.
