"This is fashion, everyone has it," said Adams, as quoted Oddity Central, Friday (01/02/2013).

This trend comes from the densely populated neighborhood. Strange body modification mostly teenagers. But Jacqui Friedling of the Department of Human Biology at the University of Cape Town study the phenomenon in 2003.

He said fashion and peer pressure the main reasons removing teeth, followed by gangsterism and medical reasons.
