Conner's 5th tooth was COMPLETELY through for probably a month before the 6th one even tried to make an appearance. Now you can finally see the tip of the 6th one, so he's almost evened out again, LOL.
9 teeth over here and his 10th is almost through!
So, I have an odd(ish) question.. Coralie has had 7 teeth for at least 6 weeks now and the 8th tooth (one of the bottom teeth) is still completely missing and doesn't seem to even be close. How long should I wait before seriously considering if she's missing that tooth? All my kids other baby teeth all came in in pairs and always within a week or two.
LOL, if it isn't in before her canines, I wouldn't wait any longer.
She will be a funny little hill-billy baby. Heh. It really looks like it's missing to me, but I'm probably have no idea what I'm talking about and it will pop through next week.
MIrabel got all of her first teeth - even her molars and canines - before she got the next two front ones on the bottom. I honestly thought she just didn't have them - there were no gum bumps there or anything. I asked the dentist and he was so uninterested in whether or not they were actually there. He just shrugged and said that either they come or they don't. Oren kind of seems to be following the same pattern - it looks like he's getting his canines right now (before molars) but never got the second pair on the bottom. Unless there is going to be a massive gap there, or something.
But it is funny that she got one and not the other.
Yeah, the lack of symmetry seems off to me. I guess only time will tell.
B got 2 teeth about a month (?) ago. One on top and one on the bottom. She didn't have the pairs until 2 days ago. It looked hilarious! She now has one canine coming in on top, but not the other.
Glad to know that her teeth did finally come in. :)
11 teeth now. working on the 12th. Poor guy! Molars are hard!!
Eli has 4 teeth now ... working on more, his molars are super swollen. It sucks that he only has 4 teeth right now since he started teething at 6 weeks old! It just feels like a very.long.time for him to only have 4 teeth!
Coralie is going on 6 weeks with a missing tooth.. I think she might need baby tooth implant. Heh heh.
Conner still only has his 4 up and 2 down. He's been GRINDING his teeth lately though. Oh my gosh, the sound is unbearable. I set a dentist appt. for him. I called his Ped. and they suggested I do take him to the dentist... I hope they don't make him wear a bite guard. =(
I thought it was normal in some children as well. My daughter does it, and my son just started (but I think he enjoys the noise it makes). One of our health care providers have said it is indicative of temperament, and a Chinese herbalist we see said it relates to the release of heat in the system, particularly in children who tend to run hot. (I *think* they mean heat in a metaphorical sense....)
I asked our ped dentist as well, and she said a lot of kids do it and outgrow it. I wouldn't stress!
