Q.

Gap between teeth (age 7)

Good afternoon,
My daughter is 7 and has a gap between her two front teeth. This is the only 2 teeth that is her permanent in her top jaw, the rest is still " baby teeth" . When she looses the other teeth, will this push the teeth together when the bigger teeth develop, or do I need to get her to a dentist to get this fix?

it is difficult to say whether they will be pushed closer without examining her. Take her to a dentist to see whether any preventive measures are necessary now
