Last year around December 2011, my sisters small child had 2 baby teeth come out, the 2 that are on the side of the large front teeth. Right after, within a short period of time, maybe 1 month, 1 of the permanent teeth comes in. However, here we are 8 months later & the other side is STILL empty, no permanent tooth yet....???
So, how long is it supposed to take? Why did 1 come out quickly, yet the other side, the identical tooth, is still missing?
Is there something wrong?
Has this happened to any of you? What should she do?
Will her child need to have an operation or something? She is a bit scared....
Could this be a sign, that there is something worse going on?
Thanks in advance!
