Dental Dilemma's with oldest girl

Hi I am new here,

I am a divorced almost 30 mom. Recently my daughter who is a September baby has a lower tooth that looks like it's coming up, but since it's my first time I don't know what is normal and I have a 3 yr old. My daughter is six and I notice behind is a slight bump of a tooth that had not erupted yet, so I am constantly wiggling the tooth because I'm nervous about shark teeth. Her classmate had two removed but her teeth were straight. I called the paediatric dentist for advice and she said that is normal and every child she sees have different issues and her own children as well. She told me to call back in a few weeks.

My daughter's classmates already have their teeth come in and the last time I looked Meiling has her 6 yr molar.

Meiling also has a discoloured tooth but I got the ok not to remove it since the X-ray showed no pus in that space, but you can tell the tooth is dead. They are really nice to slowly let them be comfy and they won't introduce the drill to clean plaque until they are ready. Unfortunately, BCs healthy kids program for low income covers only one year for one dental visit and another one for eyes plus eyeglasses are covered for one year. When they are 18 is when they are not covered by this program unless I can apply for the person with Disibility status if they have learning Disibility. Which is what I have and I'm covered in terms of dental and Eye exams.

Thanks! Concerned mom Jackie.

I'm really confused. You just talked about a September baby that is your first time, but then you talked about a 3 year old and a 6 year old.......Do you mean your 6 year old is a September baby (in which case when she was born is irrelevant).

If you are concerned just take them to the dentist.
