These cause mild to severe ulceration which may affect the child’s feeding habits. This appearance was described by Riga and Fede and hence been termed as Riga-Fede disease. Treatment option was either conservative or extraction of natal and neonatal tooth. Extraction of neonatal was planned and at the follow-up the lesion was resolved and infant was feeding normally.
