What if my child has two teeth growing in the same spot? “Shark Teeth”

Occasionally, an adult tooth comes in before your child's baby tooth falls out. It may come in behind or in front of the baby tooth. Don’t be alarmed - this is a very common occurrence with children. Encourage your child to wiggle out the baby tooth on their own. If the adult tooth is more than halfway in or if the baby tooth is not wiggly at all, contact our office so we can do an examination to determine if your child needs help getting the tooth out.
