Is it normal for adult teeth to come in overlapping not-yet-lost baby teeth? My daughter is getting her top front teeth but as they come in they are overlapping almost completely the teeth beside them, almost like she has two rows of teeth. I was hoping the emerging teeth would cause the baby teeth to come out but they are not even loose. Does she need to have these teeth pulled? Will this cause her adult teeth to be "buck"?

Sorry if these questions are stupid but she is my only child of teeth losing age so I have no frame of reference.

My daughter's teeth are coming in this way too. Her dentist said its normal and they don't pull the baby teeth for this reason anymore. I don't know if there's a point at which they would pull them...

But hers have eventually fallen out and the permanent teeth have moved into place, which is what the dentist predicted.

hope that helps,
