Is It Natural To Have 6 Pairs Of Canines?
I want to ask, is it normal for someone to have 6 pairs of canines? Are there any abnormalities?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Normally, a person only has 2 pairs of canines. One pair is above, and another pair is below, with a total of 4 canines. So if someone has 6 pairs of canines, or there are 12, then there may be abnormalities in that person.
The disorder could be due to genetic disorders, certain viral or bacterial infections since they were in the womb, or it could also be because they made themselves by filing their teeth. What is clear, it is not normal for someone to have 12 canine teeth, because it means there will be other teeth that are not there. Even if other teeth are still present, it means that the jaw will be very long to contain all the teeth.
Therefore, we suggest that if you meet someone with 6 canine teeth and the person has certain symptoms, check with your dentist for direct observation and ascertain the cause. Handling later will depend on the results of this examination. So, hopefully answering your question.
