Q.

DOUBLE TEETH

HI

My daughter is 6 yrs of age and her milk teeth are currently ready to come out but I' ve noticed that teeth are growing behind her milk teeth bed - so it looks like she is going to have 2 sets of teeth in the same row - I am very worried about this as this will look awful - is this a common issue and what can be done.

Thanking you

it is a fairly common problem.
The baby teeth need to be removed.
