Q.

Tot teeth behind jaw teeth.

Hi.
I am a worry parent with a 2 year old boy and his top teeth are behind his bottom teeth when he closes his mouth.
Am I supposed to do some thing now or do I have to wait when he is older when his permanent teeth have come out?
What is worrying me to is that when I brunches his bottom teeth he is fine but when I brunches his top teeth he hates it.
Should I take him to a specialist or do I have to wait?

Thanks Jaco.

It is advisable to consult with a dentist just in case. In most cases no intervention is advised at such an early age.
