Healthy Mouth, Healthy Kids

Infant tooth



I have a 12 month old baby girl that has bottom front tooth, but also she is growing a tooth in front of another tooth, is this normal or can it be solve??? Please reply back.


It is unusual for crowding of primary (baby) teeth to be as severe as you indicate in a 12 month-old-child.  Your daughter should be examined by pediatric dentist for a diagnosis and treatment options.
