    Question:

    Hi I have what my dentist calls a tooth for a tooth, she says it is rare . Do you know it ?

    Erika

    Answer:

    Dear Erika,

    Yes on the technical language we call it a tooth in a tooth, in latin its in-dente. It seems very rare, ca. 5 % of the population. It means in ordinary speech that the tooth is folded into itself.

    Hope you can use my answer.

    With kind regards
