Question:
Losing too many teeth at age of 5: My daughter lost her first tooth at the age of three.

She is now five and has already lost 10 teeth, with one of them being a molar. Out of the 10 teeth only 2 have grown back.

They seem to take a very long time to grow back. Is this normal or could something be wrong? ...Visitor from Australia

Answer:
There are probably several potential reasons this is happening.

The best resource for a tissue level analysis of overall oral health, current tissue conditions, potential nutritional characteristics, presence of adult tooth buds and/or jawbone health characteristics that could be interfering with the eruption process is a Periodontist.

Once one or more factors have been isolated, treatment should be fairly straight forward.
