In brief: 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. The orthodontist can monitor eruption and intervene if necessary to assure the best eruption pattern for your child. Go see an orthodontist...1st appointment usually free or very low cost.

In brief: Yes

You begin to lose your baby teeth between 6 or 7 years old.
Usually the front 4 teeth on top and bottom, and you start to see your first set of permanent molars erupting behind the last baby teeth in the back. It is always a good idea to see your dentist to make sure the eruption is going well and to get any tips on caring for these brand new teeth - you will have them for life!

In brief: Sure!

Each child develops at their own pace, and as he/she develops so do the adult teeth, which replace the primary (baby) teeth.
It is always wise to have the child examined at least twice/year by a dentist to observe the development of the teeth and jaws and to make any recommendations if needed to help the child.

In brief: Possible

This is very possible.
It is more important if there are adult teeth erupting to replace the baby teeth. Consult your dentist or a pediatric dentist.
