Abstract

We report nine cases of traumatic oral mucosal lesions (Riga-Fede disease or Cardarelli's aphthae) caused by natal teeth, and provide a brief review of the literature. Seven patients were treated with a conservative approach involving grinding of the sharp incisal edges, while extraction of the offending teeth was considered necessary in the other two cases. Triamcinolone was applied in all nine cases. At follow-up, all the lesions were healing and the infants had resumed painless feeding.
