  • Normally the first adult tooth which is the lower front teeth erupts at the age  of 6 years. So it is not late. She has lost the tooth 2 months back and you can wait upto 6 monthes after the loss of the milk tooh. If it does not erupt even then ,then you can visit the dentist and get the X-ray done and find out the status of the adult tooth.
