    4-year-old with adult teeth

    My daughter will not be five until February, but has already lost 2 baby teeth, and has the new ones growing behind. Of course, this means that the adult teeth are wider than the baby ones, and right at the back of the gum, if that makes any sense, and I just wonder how they're possibly going to fit. I'm a little concerned that she'll have a crazy set of wonky teeth. And no, I haven't taken her to the dentist yet; it's very hard to find one, and there has been so much going on that I haven't managed it yet. I will, of course, but it won't be that soon, because of Christmas and New Year. So I'm just curious to know if anyone has ever heard of a four-year-old with second teeth, and if they had problems with them...

    Second of the two fell out today, in fact, so tonight I get to be Santa AND the tooth fairy!

    congrats! your baby is growing up fast! if she had her first baby tooth before 6 months of age , then she is likely to have the 2nd set earlier. Relax, the teeth may seem bigger but remember her jaw size would also grow.(teeth dont grow in size ,they appear as adult teeth). Remember to keep her teeth clean & give her a healthy diet...take care.
