Hello My one year old has one of his teeth growing transversely to the other /on the lower part of the mouth /. It also took longer for this tooth to erupt. Could it pose any further problem / especially with the second teeth / in the future or will it correct itself without any treatment? Thanks a lot Sincerely, E.R

  • whether this tranversely growing baby tooth can effect other teeth or not depnds upon how much deviation is there, Normaly when the baby teeth grow there can be minor flaring. They are not very vertical but with time and with the eruption of other teeth they become straight. But if it is quite transverse then you have to go to the dentist and find out the cause and the treatment . With out seeing the case clinically it is difficult to comment .
