Neonatal teeth are abnormalities in the chronology of eruption in which one or more teeth, which erupt during the first 30 days following birth and cause problems such as trauma-induced ulcers of the tongue, damage to the mother’s breasts, a reduction in the quality of breastfeeding, weight loss and even aspiration of the neonatal tooth. The removal or not of these teeth should be assessed on a case-by-case basis. The aim this article was to report the clinical management of two cases of neonatal teeth. The two female babies were attended in a pediatric dental clinic. The first patient was a 2-month-old baby that had difficulty during breastfeeding due to the mobility of one of the neonatal teeth. The clinical and radiographic exam showed that the three teeth were part of the normal dentition. The two mandibular teeth had approximately one third of the crown erupted and moderate mobility and opted for follow-up. The maxillary tooth was fully erupted and had severe mobility and we opted for its removal. The clinical and radiographic exam confirmed that the two teeth were part of the natural dentition. The teeth presented the clinical crowns fully erupted and both mobile, the left tooth having more mobility than that of the right tooth and opted for removal of more mobile left central incisor. In both cases, the extractions of teeth with high mobility were performed by greater risk of aspiration and caused more difficulty during breastfeeding. The follow-up showed a quick recovery, easier breastfeeding, including weight gain.
