The grey nurse shark

Mia’s finally lost both of her top deciduous canines. It had me concern for a while as she looked like a grey nurse shark with all them teeth! If they don’t fall out on their own, they need to be excised by a vet as they can cause over-crowding, cavities and deformation of the jaw. Very relieved they fell out on their own! Here’s a pic I took of Mia a few weeks back. You can clearly see one adult canine poking through in front of the baby tooth.

  1. Well... They both do, but Mia’s the courageous one who’ll bravely stick her head under running water. :)
