Our Little Shark

May 23rd, 2011~

  It's one of those well known facts that sharks' teeth grow in rows, well as it turns out Evelyn has that same ability!  I had no idea that was even possible until one night I was brushing her teeth and noticed something particularly odd... she had two EXTRA teeth growing behind her regular teeth.  Terrified I immediately scoured the internet to figure out what in the world was going on.  What I discovered is that it actually occurs in 1 out of every 10 kids and it's called lingually erupting mandibular incisors (say that 10 times fast), but it's more commonly known as "shark teeth".

So proud of her new teeth
