Thank you very much for your help.
What is the cause of the things you list above?
My daughter has quite a lot of adult teeth, much more than any of her friends. She has never had any gaps in her mouth as te adult teeth have always been already in place when the baby teeth have fallen out.
She has a very small face and a very small jaw. Could it be that there simply isn't room in her jaw for all of her teeth?
No problem. Thank you for coming back to me. I have made an appointment for the dentist and will try not to worry.
My daughter has had problems with her teeth, with the enamol not forming properly on 2 of her baby teeth. When I was pregnant there was an anomoly with the umbilical cord where there was only one artery and one vein (single umbilical artery). I know that this can lead to a lack of nutrients to the developing feotus, could this cause problems with the enamol on teeth?
Sorry, this is the final question.
Thank you very much.
Do you mind if I ask you one last question?
I think you're right about it being a tooth in the gum as the baby tooth underneath it is a little wobbly so hopefully it will come out. There was also a little blood in the sink this morning when my daughter brushed her teeth.
Is there a particular reason why my daughter has so many adult teeth already? When we saw our dentist last time she said a tooth that was wobbly shouldn't come out until my daughter is 12, but when it came out the adult tooth was already behind it. Not just a small bit still to grow but the adult tooth the proper size already in place.
My dentist did worry me a bit when she said my daughter shouldn't be losing certain baby teeth so early. What can you do about baby teeth coming out if the adult teeth are already in place behind them?
My daughter has a very good diet with lots of fruit and vegetables and only has one glass of juice a day. She drinks plenty of water and milk.
Thank you again, so it isn't strange that so many of her adult teeth have already erupted? I just wonder that maybe because of her small jaw there simply isn't room for the baby teeth and adult teeth in the gums?
She has 5 at the top, and 6 at the bottom.
If more teeth were to erupt and this would fall outside of the normal range what would be the reason for this?
Thank you so much, you have been really helpful. If only someone had told me how stressful and worrying it is being a parent! There is always something.
