  • Yes, baby teeth are gapped - the top part. It's actually a good thing, because it allows the other teeth room to grow and align with each other as she grows.

  • I said grow twice in one sentence... sad. But you get my drift! At least I hope so...

    There's no concern. It's normal. It is her baby teeth after all - they fall out anyway. :]

  • All three of my kids' grew in with gaps and neither of them have gaps now. Don't worry, They'll probably get pushed together when her other teeth grow in.
