My cousin in VN told me that having the vampire teeth is good luck or something. A lot of people like it apparently.
Originally it's because people don't have money to go to a dentist to extract the teeth, naturally the baby teeth should fall out, but if they don't, they're stuck there, lol lots of people in Vietnam extract their teeth at home.
Anyway occasionally, the little baby teeth turn out to look cute on some girls, but most of the time they don't. The notion of "răng khếnh" in Vietnam can be either positive or negative.
But overall, I can guarantee you that they like even teeth best, if they can choose.
I remember when I was 6, my mother scolded my dad for delaying taking me to a dentist when she saw a little tiny white thing grew out behind my loose baby tooth. Of course I got it extracted on time so everything was fine, but apparently nobody around me likes răng khểnh.
