My son is 18m and has the 4 upper incisors and 2 central lower incisors. Lower first molars just erupting and no sign of the lower lateral incisors! Is there anything i need to worry about with this delayed and out of sequence of eruption?

  • Normally lateral incisors erupt before the eruption of first baby molar. rather they erupt before the eruption of upper lateral incisors. Some times the eruption is delayed but many times these lateral baby incisors are missing also. You can get the X-ray done to find out the position of the tooth.
