How long for permanent teeth to grow in after baby teeth are lost?!

Question: How long for permanent teeth to grow in after baby teeth are lost.?
My son is 6 1/2, and lost all four of his front top teeth at various times, but all within a couple of months of each other. It is now about six months later, and I see no sign of the new ones coming in. Is this normal.?

He's my 3rd child, but I can't remember how long the others took. Thanks!Health Question & Answer


Permanent teeth usually come in between the ages of 6 and 8. There are several factors that can affect how long it takes. For example if the baby teeth were lost abnormally (e.g. knocked out accidentally) it may take quite a while before the permanent ones come in. Infections of baby teeth before they fell out etc.

To answer your question, I wouldn't panic just yet, permanent teeth usually start appearing around age 7. However, you should probably take him for a check up with a dentist, they'll do an xray to make sure everything is alrightHealth Question & Answer Question & Answer
