Hi, my 3 and a half year old has had really bad problems with her teeth and as a result had to have the top teeth pulled out. She has developed a slight lisp because of it and i was just wondering if it would go away? Should i be worried?

I would talk to an orthodontist about it. My daughter knocked out a top tooth when she was about 18 months old and we had to have a space maintainer (temporary bridge) put in to help her speech develop normally.
