Q.

Teeth not growing

My son turned 6 in May. By that time he had already lost 4 front teeth in the upper jaw. Only one of them has (fully) grown. The other three have not even appeared. I''m starting to worry. Should I be?

no- children develop differently and many get their first permanent tooth at 7-8
