Hi Amy – There should be one tooth growing in to replace the one that fell out. Also, it looks like the other adult tooth is coming in behind the baby tooth that is pretty loose. It is probably doing this because of crowding – there just wasn’t enough room for it to come in right underneath the loose baby tooth.
Mar 06, 2006 · Thanks for an interesting article. My 4 year old daughter has the left lower center tooth coming in behind the baby tooth, it is coming up a little crooked,and the front left corner is touching the back of the 2nd left tooth. the baby tooth it is replacing is wiggling since a few days,and we only spotted the tooth .
At times, a permanent tooth will not grow directly under a baby tooth. This cause the root to remain intact and the baby tooth will not be pushed out. If it happens, the permanent tooth may erupt behind the baby tooth and will give your kid’s mouth a shark like appearance.
