Health is wealth they say, so if you don’t take care of your health it will affect your enjoyment. That is to say if you don’t take care of your teeth it will affect your eating chicken. With this we will be looking at the teeth defect ‘Hyperdontia’.
What is Hyperdontia? Hyperdontia is a condition that causes too many teeth to grow in your mouth. The extra teeth usually grow directly or close to your usual primary or permanent teeth.These teeth are sometimes called supernumerary teeth.
Causes of Hyperdontia: According to an article from Healthline Clinic published on September 29, 2018, the exact causes of hyperdontia is unknown, but it seems to be associated with several hereditary conditions and they include:
Fabry Disease: This syndrome causes the inability to sweat, painful hands and feet, a red or blue skin rash and abdominal pain.
Cleft Palate and Lip: These birth defect causes an opening in the roof of the mouth or upper lip thereby causing trouble with eating, speaking and ear infection.
Gardner’s Syndrome: This is a rare genetic disorder that causes skin cyst, skull and colon growth.
Cleidocranial Dysplasia: This condition causes abnormal development of the skull and collarbone.
Finally, many people with Hyperdontia don’t need treatment. Others may need to have some or all their extra teeth removed to avoid any other problems. Make sure to always contact your doctor about any feelings of pain, discomfort or swelling in the mouth if you have hyperdontia.
