Dental and Oral Health (Children)
My daughter lost her upper central incisor
i like to know , if ther is someting wrong w/ my dougther tooth. she lost the two uper central incisors 3 months ago and they are not growing back.
Depending on the age of your daughter, it may or may not be a problem. If your daughter is 7 years old or younger, it can be normal for upper central incisors to come in months after the baby teeth are lost. If your daughter lost her baby teeth early (younger than 7 years of age) due to an injury or infection, it often takes longer. If your daughter is older than 7, she should be seen by a dentist to check for problems that could delay the eruption of her teeth.
