but we have a good one.... cory has his first wobbly tooth...lol he is so proud he has been watching his older brother wobble his and kept signing he wanted one..lol..now he has
im trying to look up about the tooth growth in our kiddies as i know its a bit different..i can find out about that the first ones may be a bit small n slow on arriving but nothing on the second lot or even if there is a second lot does any one with older kiddies have any knowledge on this??
Hi tracey - I went to the dentist with daniel last week, and thought I'd ask about kiddies with DS and their teeth as ive heard different things...so this is what he said... generally if their first teeth came at around the 'usual' time, then its likely that adult teeth come through like that as well. If the milk teeth were very late/problematic, then it may mean that they would be late, or may not appear at all. Main things to watch out for is gum disease as teeth can sometimes be a bit crooked or packed in due to small pallets, so to be extra good with brushing etc. He was nice actually and also said that these things may or may not happen as with anyone else and may or may not be 'Downs' related - also its in the genes and a bit luck of the draw! I think its a case of look after them and wait and see!! Hope that helps! (a bit!!) Sarah xx
GREAT NEWS........cory has 2 adult teeth starting to show..wot a relief....he is now showing me them every day and signing that they are growing...and its a great way to get him to clean his teeth..i keep telling him that if he keeps cleaning them they will grow..lol
cory is 6 now..its flown by...corys top teeth were lovely and straight to and the bottom ones were all there but a bit gappy(and narrow looking) but the new ones seem to be 'normal' looking...im just glad that they are there at all..lol
