post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

My son Damien lost his front teeth at the end of June, well its almost May and still no front teeth! Poor little guy, no front teeth, we tease him and say " grow brush your tooth" lol. All in good fun. But when are the teeth going to grow back?? does anyone know? lol please comment if you know the answer.

If they came out because the new ones pushed them out, then it shouldn't be much longer.  However, if they fell out because he hit them on something, it could take some time.

 

Honestly, I don't even remember.  I'm sure it was a few months before they fully came in with my girls.

My six year old lost her front teeth in October and then lost 2 more teeth since then. None of them seem to be growing back. When she was at the dentist last month, they took an x-ray and told me that they are getting ready to come in but it is normal for it to take a while . They told me not to worry! This may be the case for your son.

I do recommend asking his dentist. A year is a little long.

You don't lose teeth because others push them out.  Baby teeth fall out because the root of the tooth has resorbed, and there's nothing to hold them in any longer.  Sometimes the roots resorb faster and they fall out way sooner than the others are ready to come in....other cases the roots don't resorb fast enough and you end up with new teeth growing in before baby teeth fall out.    I wouldn't be overly worried (my kids' normally take about 9-10 mths to grow in), but when you take him in for the next cleaning mention it to the DDS.  If they're concerned they'll x-ray it.

Ha!  I didn't know this.  But thinking back, it makes sense.

DD had one that was knocked out or pulled out by a cob of corn, and I think it was too early for that one to have fallen out, it took 18 months to come in.  Her teeth next to her front teeth have still to come in and it has been 2 years, dentist says it is ok... I just have to "trust" that she is right.  They do look really funny though don't they with teeth missing!  not like a cute baby with a lil tooth sticking out!
