- 4. Permanent teeth coming in behind baby teeth - discussion on the Berkeley Parents Network (BTW, I love to reference the Berkeley Parents Network for lots of discussion on bringing up kids. Too bad you can't join the discussion unless you live in that area but its still a good reference place to read about advise by real parents to other parents about real parenting issues)
- 5. How are milk teeth replaced by permanent teeth? The animation by 32teethonline here shows the more common way where the permanent teeth pushes out the baby teeth during eruption, it does not talk about permanent teeth that is growing behind or parallel to the milk teeth. Still the animation is good and you can show it to your little ones when you talk to them about their teeth.
Hope these links will be useful to other parents whose child's permanent teeth is coming in behind their milk teeth.
My girl had her primary teeth coming in behind her lower baby teeth just like in the picture above but two instead of one. They grew till they were almost the same height before the milk teeth finally fell off. The dentist I saw did not think it was necessary to extract them. My sister in law who had the same problem with her son had his milk tooth extracted by the dentist. So to extract or not, depends on which dentist you see, I suppose. After a while the permanent teeth will move to its rightful place I am told although my girl's teeth are still a little bit behind the others. The dentist does not think it is a problem. If it eventually moves to the front, I will post an update on this blog.
