DD has shark teeth
seeit2 posted:
OK it's dental month at Deb's house. DD turned 7 last spring and has not lost a single tooth. About a month ago we found that one of her bottom teeth was coming in behind the baby teeth in front - it was lining up behind her bottom teeth. We called it her shark tooth (turns out dentists do to lol) and took her to the DDS. He gave her two weeks to wiggle the front teeth out herself and if that didn't happen we made a date to pull them both. THey did not budge. So yesterday she had two teeth pulled. She took it like a champ and is thrilled to finally be like all the other kids and have gaping holes in her smile. Supposedly the new tooth will move forward into place once it has the space - time will tell.

One of DD's teeth did that, too. The back tooth was in before the front one was gone. We were able to pull the baby tooth, though. The back tooth did slide up into place, and looks fine now. Well, as "fine" as her other teeth look -- the dentist has told us to start saving for braces.

My nephew had to have his four front teeth pulled for the same reason. I had to have a tooth pulled for the same reason as well.

My nephew had to have at least 4 teeth pulled b/c there was no room in his mouth for his new teeth. She is a jack-o-lantern just in time for Halloween!! LOL.
