My son was born in August. He was born with 2 lower front teeth. Now where his teeth were pulled, his gums are very swollen. The doctors assured me that he would not have any problems with teething. Is this true, and will he still get teeth where the 2 teeth were pulled from?

  • Your child was born with neonatal teeth and they have to be pulled out if they are mobile and afterwards normally the children do not have any problem with teething. Now the question is whether baby teeth will erupt or not in place of these teeth depends whether the pulled out teeth were predeciduous or the deciduous (baby teeth). This can be confirmed after taking the xray. If they were deciduous, which are sometimes present at the time of birth then your child will not have baby teeth but will get the adult teeth. The acutal thing can be confirmed only after seeing xray and clinical diagnosis. If your dentist has done the xray and he is saying that baby teeth will come then may be right.
