  • There are 20 baby teeth present which usually erupt by age of 3 years. In some kids, late eruption of baby teeth takes place. If baby teeth erupt late, then they will fall also late. Some systemic, genetic, nutritional problems or local factors can lead to delayed eruption of baby teeth. You can take your kid to a pedodontist who is a specialist in children dentistry for evaluation. Dentist may even take an x-ray to see the positioning of baby teeth. By the time her other teeth erupts, you can use a wet cloth wrapped around your finger and clean your kid’s mouth and gums to remove the food accumulates which are present on the gums.  For more info on eruption pattern of teeth, refer to….   http://www.identalhub.com/article_human-dentition-233.aspx
