My 6 years old adult teeth coming behind the baby teeth, is the new teeth will in the right position?

I was just helping my 6 year old brush his teeth and noticed his bottom front adult tooth is coming in behind the baby teeth. He hasn't lost any teeth yet.

  • I would bring him to the dentist to see what your dentist thinks but I will say the same thing happened to my DS and his teeth are perfect.

  • My kids had that. Once the baby teeth came in, the adult teeth moved right into place. I wouldn't worry. Just show the dentist the next time you go.

  • Your child should see the dentist. If the teeth are not spaced correctly after they come in he may need to get braces. No big deal.

  • A couple of DS's teeth have done that. We ended up having to pull his baby teeth out but after that his adult teeth grew in just fine.

  • Most of the time, they will come in fine, but as others have said, it would be a good idea to check with his dentist and let him/her take a look to make sure everything is all right in there.

  • He will be fine.... Try not to worry about it. That happened to my daughter and though it looks painful her baby tooth came out and adult tooth moved back to it's normal position.
