Question:
My son just turned 8 months and has gotten 3 teeth on the bottom and 4 teeth on top. The problem is that his top teeth are 3-4 cm. behind the bottom. I am wondering if the problem is he is just getting his teeth too soon and the jaw has not had time to grow out or is this a problem that should be adressed now or when he gets older. ...Steven in OH

Answer:
Steven, at this time, I would not worry about the crossbite. The crossbite will be addressed when he is 5+ years old. Also, this may self-correct as he gets older.

So, do not worry at this time and keep an eye on this. Also, you can make an appointment with a pediatric dentist in your area for a consultation.
