No: There is no proven correlation between wisdom tooth eruption and crowding of the other teeth. This used to be a common misconception, but has since been rejected by orthodontics.

Should we extract baby teeth molars, in a 7 year old, if the adult teeth are not present underneath?
Probably not: I would strongly advise that these teeth not be removed as long as they are not creating any problems. If there are no adult teeth to replace them, they will be very important as the child gets older to keep the all the teeth in the upper and lower arch in the correct place and position.

I would suggest seeing aa dentist who can diagnose the problem. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Big or small?: Small cavities are taken care of with bonded tooth colored composite fillings. When cavities get bigger and the strength of the tooth is compromised a porcelain restoration that covers most of or all of the tooth is used.
