Healthy Mouth, Healthy Kids
my child has a permanent tooth that has not come in yet,but it looks like it is trying to come in above her gum.is this normal?what should i do?
Thank you for the question. Much of the answer depends on the child's age and dental development. This may be completely normal. The best recommendation I can give is having a thorough examination (possibly including xrays) by a dentist. Hope this helps!
