Q.

Teeth

I noticed on saturday that my one twin is getting another tooth at the bottom right, right at the back. I was under the impression that they don't get anymore teeth. They are turning 5 in june. How many teeth are they suppose to get and until what age?

Your child is not due to get any teeth at his/her age. In a year your children will start losing their milk teeth and start getting their permanent teeth.
