    I guess that`s something I never thought of before seeing this. If a child takes a hard enough blow to the right spot in the face, he/she could break teeth that haven`t even come in yet. Ouch.

    This reinforces my theory that children are made entirely of teeth.

    So cool! It`s genetic in my family to still have most of your baby teeth (skipped me, thank god)... I`m pretty sure people are born with buds to all of their adult teeth. Some of my family were born without those buds... Crazy stuff, man.

    That doesn`t make sense. Baby teeth don`t have roots, which is why they fall out so easy. All those teeth that are out of the gums have roots. This is not a baby skull. Maybe some poor bastard who`s teeth came in wrong.

    That is really weird. I assume the reason the adult teeth are so big is because the baby skull is still small?

    Previous comment: If baby teeth didn`t have roots, how would they stay in while they`re needed? Don`t the roots get absorbed later when the adult tooth is about to emerge?

    @RevWubby: They do have roots, I had many baby teeth yanked so I could get braces early. When a tooth is ready to fall out, the root and much of the dentine (the inner tooth) is absorbed by the body, leaving a mostly hollow tooth that falls out easily. If you pull them before this point, they look like tiny adult teeth that have been pulled. My oral surgeon actually showed me a baby tooth he pulled from my mouth versus one of my adult teeth he pulled. They looked the same, just different sizes.

    Baby teeth do have roots - the adult tooth just resporbs the baby root away as it pushes through.

    This child is between 5 and 7 years old.

    The child is missing a lateral incisor.

    This is a natural process and rarely causes any pain at all.

    The canine tooth is sometimes called the `eye tooth`. This picture clearly demonstrates why.

    This is similar to how this child would look on an xray (2 years later)

    Didn`t check Lisa21`s link, but i don`t think it`s a good idea to let people with less than 100 posts create a link...
