Q.

New teeth at 12 years?

Is it a worry to have a child of 12 years old still getting new teeth? A tooth falls out and is replaced by a new tooth about every 3 months since he was 6 years....One tooth is ' replaced'  more than once!

the second molars develop at around the age of 12 so it is quite normal. One tooth will not be replaced more that once.
