My six year old daughter's milk teeth are spaced out far apart and they seem to be getting further apart. Will her new set of teeth close the gap or is there something that I should do about it. Thank you

  • Having gap in milk teeth is actually a good sign of dentition. As permanent teeth are large than temporary teeth, so gap between the milk teeth gives adequate space for the permanent teeth to grow. No space between the milk teeth is a sign of future overcrowding. From my side, there is no need to freak out but in case you are curious you can visit the dentist to go for a check up. Just make sure that you maintain a proper oral hygiene of your child's mouth...
