Q.

SON OF 7'S TEETH STILL NOT OUT

My son's milk teeth came out more or less March 2006. No permanent teeth have grown. He's lost 6 in total already, only 2 have grown. Should I be concerned? He doesn't have teeth in the front of his mouth! How long before it grows back? I haven't taken him to a dentist yet.

take him to a dentist. X-rays will show the position of the permanent teeth. Some teeth will only erupt at 11/12 years
