[Anomalies of the oral cavity in Mexican neonates].


The results of 1,200 physical oral cavity examinations in neonates born at the National Institute of Perinatology (INPer) are reported here, finding the frequency of occurrence of inclusion cysts, natal and neonatal teeth. We found that 46% (551 neonates) of those examined had inclusion cysts, among which the Bohn nodules were the most frequent (36 cases); a case of natal teeth was found as well as 30 cases of neonatal teeth. We emphasize the importance of these findings to both the pediatrician and the dentist since they constitute a frequent motive for visits during the perinatal period.
