My middle son has been waiting forever to lose a tooth. At his last dental appointment, the dentist said that it would be sometime in the next six months for the bottom teeth. So I have been checking periodically. Last week I noticed that one of his teeth and a tiny bit loose. I reminded him to wiggle it all week. When I checked it yesterday I noticed that his adult tooth is growing in but is behind the baby tooth. The baby tooth is still tight in there and only barely moves. And the tooth next to it is starting to come up behind the baby tooth too.
Is that bad? Does he need to see a dentist and if so, what will the dentist do?
He is seven and these are his first loose teeth.
