Child developing adult teeth.


The process is known as exfoliation. Inside the mouth of every child is a terrifying double row of teeth— muscle, skin and bone prevent most of us from ever catching a glimpse of this extra dentition. Here’s your chance to get a close-up look at what lies beyond the gum line of what each of us goes through in childhood.”
