Hi, my 7 year old son has two big middle bottom teeth growing behind his milk teeth - which are not falling out. Has anyone else had this problem? What should I do?

If the baby teeth aren't loosening then go to the dentist! The dentist can examine the situation and determine if he needs to help the baby teeth come out or not.

If the teeth are not loose yet, you should go to a dentist. Once the baby teeth are gone the adult one should move into position.

My eldest had that and the milk teeth came out before the big ones came up significantly. Hope that helps.
