Q.

Teething

My daughter is 4 years old and she still does not have front teeth(below) so shes got a space of about 2 teeth. I have taken her to a dentist on several accassions and the doctor said everything looks ok

Is there any medical explanation to this?

hi lexy,

the average age for eruption of the permanent lower front teeth is about 6years so I wouldn't be ocncrned at all.
