hi
my name is Nada and I'm a Dentist and i have good experience with childeren
It must be first molars which comes out at this age with the lower front incisors,,,, wisdom teeth come at 17 years and most probably at 20 years
check his milk teeth if he has 2 milk molars (after the canine) and the new one is the third then this is his first molar

Not with wisdom teeth I haven't, but with 6 year molars I have. Then they get 12 year molars as well. Wisdom teeth would come sometimes after those 8 teeth. Has your child gotten all of those 8 teeth already?

Funny thing happened with all my kids teeth (2 girls, 1 boy). When their adult teeth came through, the baby teeth didn't fall out, so they all had 2 rows of teeth, like an alligator. They all ended up having the baby teeth pulled. Possibly genetically related to my early wisdom tooth growth?

It's so weird to see several people that got wisdom teeth so early... even before the ages that most people are still getting 6 or 12 year molars.

Hi. My wisdom teeth came in at age 9. The top ones popped out without any problems, but the lower wisdom teeth kept poking through my gums, and then receding back into the gum for about 2 months, then it would start to come in again, then go back into the gum again. It took until I was 11 until the bottom ones fully came in. Unfortunately, the enamel on all my wisdom teeth was non-existent, and rotted out at age 32.

It's not always at 17 that wisdom teeth first come through. I was 13 when my first wisdom tooth came through and I had all 4 of them pulled by the time I was 15! However chances of your son having wisdom teeth at such a young age is 0%!
It's gotta be molars!

Hi, I have noticed the same over the past two weeks with my son who is 5 years and 7months. He seems to have what i thought was his wisdom teeth coming through top and bottom in the same area the wisdom teeth would come through just

after his two baby molars, my son hasn't lost any of his baby teeth yet. I rang my dentist today and she wants to see him monday to check them but she did seem puzzled by what i was telling her. I was 13years when i got my wisdom teeth!
