My 11 year old daughter only has 8 permanent teeth and the others are baby. Should we just wait the baby teeth to fall out? Is this a late eruption?

11 yr old daughter: I'm not sure what your question is. Should you wait for what? Take her to the dentist for an exam and x-rays to check on the presence, location and eruption of the permanent teeth. ...Read more

Rash (Definition)

Most bumps and blotches on a newborn baby are harmless and clear up by themselves. By far the most common skin problem in infants is diaper rash. Diaper rash is an irritation of the skin caused by dampness, urine, or feces. Most babies who wear diapers will have some type of diaper rash. However, there are other skin disorders that can cause rashes. These are usually not serious unless ...Read more

Baby teeth- how important are baby teeth? Can rotten baby teeth affect babies? When should I take baby to the doctor?

Yes. Peds dentist: Rotten baby teeth can reflect more than poor hygiene, and can sometimes be a sign of a nutritional or systemic disorder. Although they will be replaced by adult teeth, rotten teeth and associated bacteria in the mouth have been linked to heart disease in adults. Get your baby to a pediatric dentist as soon as you can. ...Read more

Probably not: Although if his mouth is bothering and he is licking his lips they may be chapped. Why don't you call your dentist and make an examination appointment to rule out dental causes. ...Read more

Yes: On average, baby teeth start erupting at 6-7 months and continue until 2 yrs of age. Some, however, are delayed and the teeth come in later. It's nothing to worry about. ...Read more

No set #: Orthodontic treatment is not a commodity, it's a service. Everyone is unique, with unique problems and unique solutions. This is a rx decision your orthodontist needs to make with you based on his diagnostic findings. Go now for an examination. Better to go too early and be told "not yet" than too late and be told "oops.". ...Read more

When are children supposed to start losing their baby teeth? My son is six and has yet to have any teeth even become loose. Is this something to be concerned about? .

Dr. Shawn Colbert
Board Certified, Pediatric Dentistry

I : I would not be concerned because some of my patients do not lose teeth until seven and it will usually be the lower front central incisors. Some children will start exfoliating teeth at age four or five. I find that the children that are late with the eruption of their baby teeth seem to show the same pattern with the eruption of the permanent teeth. There is a year or two fluctuation with the eruption scheme of the permanent teeth. Also around this time the six year molars will start to erupt but again they may not start till seven. These teeth do not replace baby teeth and they erupt way in the back of the mouth. This is why it is important to have a dental exam and a panoramic x-ray at age six to check for proper growth and developement. This x-ray allows one to see all the teeth growing in the mouth. It is not uncommon to have baby teeth until the age of 12 and sometimes 13. There are genetic components involved meaning if the parents got there teeth in late usually we see the same trend with their children. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Delayed eruption: Not abnormal, some children will get their teeth earlier while others later. It is normal. When children's teeth come in later than average, it is called delayed tooth eruption. Good luck. ...Read more

Will all my baby teeth fall out eventually?

Yes, but...: They will all fall out if there is a permanent tooth under it to replace it. If there is no permanent tooth or the permanent tooth is in the wrong position the baby tooth may not come out on its own. If you are concerned you can see a dentist for x-rays to determine where you stand. ...Read more
