Twin girls in India have both been born with fully-formed front teeth, shocked doctors have reported. The non-identical babies were born at 32 weeks and had to be kept in an incubator for the first 15 days of their life. Despite being slightly underweight, overall they were healthy, and had been breastfeeding with no trouble since birth. Dentists examined their mouths they saw that the girls have 
fully-formed bottom front two teeth, which were slightly yellow and 
hard.Teeth that a baby is born with
 are medically known as ‘natal teeth’, while teeth that erupt within the
 first 30 days after the child is born are called ‘neonatal teeth’.The
 chance of a baby being born with teeth - or them erupting in the first 
month after birth  - is between one in 2,000  and 1 in 3,500. Such teeth usually develop in the lower gums and have little root structure meaning they are often wobbly.Often, they are removed after birth as there is a danger the child might choke on them.
