Mamelons (Baby’s teeth have bumps)

What in the world is that?

Mamelons are on the biting edges of teeth. They are real and they are very helpful!

Mamelons help teeth to cut through the gums when the teeth are erupting into the mouth.

They are only present on front teeth and show as three bumps.

Over time they will wear down and nothing has to be done about them. If they do not wear down by the time a patient is in their 20’s then a dentist can help shape them with a gentle drill. But natural is the best.
