After 13 weeks the fetus is formed and the separation of the rudiments of the milk teeth. Directly above them at 23 weeks formed the beginnings of permanent. If during the process of laying the germ of the teeth on the fetus will be affected by adverse factors, it may develop hypodontia or edentulous — pathology in which the child has no rudiments of milk teeth: one, several, or all, which is extremely rare.
