Baby teeth coming in strange...kind-of concerned

Carrie - posted on 03/16/2010 ( 6 moms have responded )




I'm hoping some of you can ease my mind a little. My little girl got her 2 bottom front teeth and they came in beautifully. Next she got one of her lateral incisors (the teeth next to the top front) and that came in fine. But now she has one of her top front teeth coming in but it looks like it is right in the center of her gums. It looks like she's going to have one front tooth right in the middle! My husband thought it was both of her front teeth coming in at the same time. Now that its been a few days since it broke through, it looks like one big tooth. Has anybody else ever seen this or had this concern? I'm kinda nervous! Please help!

i know what you little guy (2yrs 5mo) has zig-zag crooked bottom teeth like mine (i've done the braces and retainer thing). i'm holding out for him until he's 4 years old when i take him to the dentist for his first check up, just to see if anything changes in the next year. hoping they will straighten themselves out as he gets bigger.

i wouldn't worry too much my daughters incisors came through as fangs. They lose theses teeth but speak to your dentist if your still worried xx

My only thought is that the teeth move as others come in. My son had gaps, but those have closed for the most part. I would not worry about it. You could bring her for a visit to a pediatric dentist. My dentist does not even charge under 3 years. He showed me how to brush my son's teeth and talked with him about good hygiene for him. It was helpful. A pediatric dentist may at least put your mind at ease.

i cant really remember how my sons front tooth came in but i remember something about his teeth in the front but i wouldnt worry about it when his other tooth comes threw it will push it over or move on its own

My Son is exactly the same way! I was super worried when I found his top tooth coming through yesterday. But if you feel in your mouth, your top teeth are sort the same way.
