3 Year 6 Months Old Girl | Aug 2015
My 7 years old girl upper tooth fall down, its almost one month now. The new tooth is not coming out. Could you please explain what's the reason for this?
Sometimes a baby tooth falls out and the replacement doesn't show up for a few months. It is called delayed eruption, the slow appearance of the permanent tooth often happens when a baby tooth is knocked out or is damaged after a fall, turns dark, and then comes out a bit early. Sometimes the new tooth doesn't show up for well over a year. It also may happen because the pressure of the erupting permanent tooth displaces the baby tooth, even though the permanent tooth isn't quite ready to make an appearance. Your child must see a dentist once in six months. You can get the advice from your dentist when you visit next time.
