Question
"My grandson is 5years 10 months old.Milk teeth have fallen out 2 nos (Cental upper incisior)first followed by 2nos central incisior(lower).But the problem is that upper ones are not reappearing at all,although more the 8 months have passed since the fallout.Kindly suggest some remedy."

Answer
Dear Kaylan;

This is early for the top front teeth to fall out.  He may have experienced an injury at an early age which resorbed the roots of the baby (milk) teeth.  An upper xray needs to be taken to see were the permanent are and especially the root development of those teeth. This will help determine when these new teeth will come into the mouth.
