Two Rows of Teeth

It’s relatively common for children to have their first adult teeth grow behind other  baby teeth. This does not always require treatment. We will check how loose the baby tooth is and develop a plan for your child.

If your child’s “tooth behind a tooth” involves the lower or upper front teeth, there is a good chance it will happen with the other front tooth right next to it. For that reason, we may opt to remove multiple teeth so that they don’t have to go through the extraction process more than once.

The most common place for this to occur is the lower and upper front teeth, but it can happen anywhere.
