Question:
My 15 month old has 4 upper teeth and two lower ones. We noticed some back teeth that are coming in on the bottom on both sides.

The problem is I noticed this one back tooth that has emerged is soft and my daughter can move it forward with her tongue. It is white and looks like a tooth, but I am wondering if it is tissue or a nerve.

Should I be concerned about this? We have not taken our daughter to the dentist yet and didn't enroll her in our dental insurance this year thinking we wouldn't need it. ...Visitor from Huntersville

Answer:
Your child is 3 months overdue for her first visit with a dentist.

At this juncture, you should be concerned about EVERYTHING going on in your daughter's mouth especially if it appears unusual.

Waiting for insurance to pay is not likely something your daughter would want you to do.
