Abstract

The case of an immature natal maxillary first primary molar is reported. Natal molars are rare occurrences, the present instance being only the eighteenth reported case. Clinical and histologic examination revealed that the tooth was rootless, incompletely mineralized, and acutely inflamed. Subsequent radiographs showed that the tooth was actually the primary first molar.
