A mother got the shock of her life when her toddler son grew ‘Dracula’ teeth in the space of a week.

Hayley Muircroft, from Kent, was surprised when her two-and-a-half year old son Oakley grew two teeth shaped like fangs around six months ago, shares Daily Mail.

Just a few days earlier, her son had a pair of straight teeth before the pointed incisors pushed through in a matter of days.

The 28-year-old mother took her son to the dentist after becoming concerned about the pointy teeth.

She was reassured that her son was not the only child to develop the bizarre set of teeth and that they would eventually grind down after eating tougher food.

The family have spoken to the youngster in order to make him not feel self-conscious about his teeth, and he has now even taken to introducing himself as ‘little Dracula’.

‘We call him our little vampire. I know people are going to call him that anyway, so I decided to make something positive of it.’

Have your children had anything similar?

We recently shared how the parents of an 11-week-old baby boy were left shocked when he grew a fang tooth “overnight”. Read more HERE

  • My second set of teeth grew out this way and I still have them. Mine look in proportion to the rest of my teeth. Thankfully my 2 haven’t got them yet


  • I have never come across anything like this.


  • The toddler may not have enough room in his gums for the teeth to come through correctly.


  • These look a bit scarey. Would’ve been great for Halloween lol


  • This is rather scary stuff. Those are razor sharp fangs the toddler has developed.


  • Can’t say I’ve seen anything like this before- thought the photo was photoshopped at first or those fake plastic fangs.


  • Wow, I’ve never seen this before. I imagine they would be more helpful for chewing certain foods, but do they effect him at all inside his mouth?


  • Does he have trouble eating and chewing?


  • Look at that cheeky grin. It’s good the parents are making something positive out of this. Oakley seems to be taking it in his stride by calling himself “little Dracula”.


  • He’s so cute and cheeky. Poor little thing though, having teeth like that. Good to see his family make something positive out of it and embrace it.


  • No my kids didn’t have anything similar to this.
    I like how the parents deal positively with it: calling him our little vampire, knowing people are going to call him that anyway, deciding to make something positive of it.


  • All these weird teeth stories are creepy


  • little cutie!


  • Every child is different in the way they grow and develop. Love the way the parents have prepared their child against teasing from his class mates.


  • My teeth are like that, not quite as extreme, but they are my adult teeth, not my baby teeth. Maybe I should have had dental work, but back then when they came through I had a real phobia of the dentist. I used to hate them, but now that I’m older and comfortable in my own skin I barely give them a thought. It’s only cosmetic, and my husband couldn’t care less!
