                                          Hey Mommas!!,

My almost 10 month old daughter is getting her two top teeth in...but they are extremely far part, actually you can fit a whole nother tooth in that space...I am like sooo scared that she will have this giant gap!!

When babies teeth grow in do they come together or should I be woried??

Thankyou!!

A very concerned momma!!

They'll grow together when the other ones start to grow in and then when she loses them I bet her permanent teeth will be just fine!

It should be ok, but if she has teeth she should be seeing a dentist and he can tell you more. 

A baby should see a dental office at there first tooth, or not later than there first birthday, and most will want to see them every 3 months.

The other teeth should push those two together hopefully, but if the space is that big then they might not meet up completely. I think a small gap isn't bad plus those are going to fall out anyway. Both of my kids' teeth came in perfectly and my daughter has the straightest, whitest teeth I've ever seen. But she'd three. Who knows what the perm ones will look like. I wouldn't worry.

My friends lil girl has a gap between her baby teeth. I think that once the adult teeth come in they will come together. If not, the dentist has these little teeth rubberbands that you use and it pulls them together.

Are you sure that they are her top front teeth?? Could it be one front tooth and one side tooth??

Teeth do move as others come in.  For example, my first son had horrible alignment with his baby teeth, but his adult teeth came in much better.  On the same note, my middle kid had perfect baby teeth but his adult teeth are so horrible I am getting him braces as soon as he is old enough.  He also complains that his teeth hurt since a new tooth has started to come though because it is coming through crooked and is pushing the others out of the way.

My goodness relax!  If you are really worried take baby to the orthodontist!!  I really believe they will straighten themselves out....!

My son is 17 months and has a full mouth of teeth.  I tried taking him to the dentist on 2 occasions and both dentists told me to come back when he was 2.  Any younger and they can't follow direction enough to sit and have a good exam.  I wish I could take him sooner, he literally has all but 2 jaw teeth and I want him to see the dentist ASAP to avoid problems later.
