my son is growing an extra tooth in his lower jaw, which i suspect is a permanent tooth but the milk tooth has not fallen off. is this normal, or is it an abnormal tooth growth?

  • It happens some times. The baby tooth does not fall off and the adut tooth comes out. Normally the baby tooth sheds before the eruption of the adult tooth but if it has not fallen off then the baby tooth is called as the retained tooth You have to visit the dentst who will pull out the baby tooth and the adult tooth then will come in its normal position.
