Adult teeth growing again and again

Hi, So I figured I would try this out cause what the hell, I had nothing to lose. The issue is, my girlfriend posed me with this genetic issue. As a scientist I found it quite interesting. To quit keeping you in suspense I'll say that she regrows her adult teeth. Some teeth she has regrown 4+ times (example: front teeth). These teeth are not always as completely formed (lack of enamel for instance) and also tend to come in where they please. they do not limit themselves, in some cases, to the correct places where the previous tooth/teeth had fallen out. Now I'm curious, what do you think this is? I have looked high and low on the internet to no avail.

In humans, it is only possible to have two sets of teeth. Temporary and permanent tooth....but there is a condition termed cleido cranial dysostosis (CCD) where the milk teeth are retained thereby delaying the eruption of permanent teeth...In such cases patient may get confused with permanent and milk teeth. So i would suggest you to visit a pedodontist and an oral surgeon. Get and OPG done...after that only it can be diagnosed that what the case is....For more info visit the link...http://www.identalhub.com/dental-causes-and-treatment-of-supernumerary-teeth-740.aspx
