Q.

RE: ADULT TEETH

Dear Doc

My 9 yrs old son has difficulties in removing teeth, so on September last year I took him to hospital to get the teeth out (two front teeth on the upper jaw and two on the lower) The teeth hasn't come yet. He only removed two from the lower jaw by himsef in 2002 and they came out in 2-3 months. So i'm scared that the teeth won't come at all because he's too old, he's turning 10 in May.

Is there anything he can take to make the teeth come fast?

Your help will be highly appreciated

The best would be to have this evaluated by your dentist. He can also check how far the permanent teeth are from erupting.
