Question:

Hi
our daughter at 7 1/2, has only lost 2 baby teeth at the bottom of the mouth – is this normal?? There are no new teeth to look, at the top or behind her baby teeth and no rokketænder... Thought that you, as a 8 year old had most of his adult teeth?
She was late to get his baby teeth...
we need to do something or just wait?
Thank you in advance
christina

Answer:

Dear Christina

It is very normal that there is a difference in when children get their permanent teeth. It is typically only when you are 12 years that you have most of your adult teeth, but of course there is a difference in the children.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards
