My son 6 nearly 7 yrs old got his adult teeth which pushed out his baby teeth in this time he got a rash around mouth. Is the rash from teeth?

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

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

Can you tell me how many baby teeth can remain in your mouth in order to get braces?

Can you tell me how many baby teeth can remain in your mouth in order to get braces?

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? .

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

Absolutely: Timing and position of loss of baby teeth and eruption of permanent teeth is exquisitely important for normal alignment. At age 7 your child should have their 1st orthodontic appointment.

Not unusual at all: Children will normally begin to lose their baby teeth between the ages of 4-7. The lower two front teeth should be the first to go. As long as the order of the tooth loss and adult replacement proceeds normally, the actual age of loss shouldn't matter. Enjoy! ...Read more
