    Default How long should a tooth take?

    My 7yo son has lost 8 teeth so far, all in perfect sequence. The teeth weren't knocked out or pulled out, they became loose and fell out like you would usually expect them to.

    He lost his top incisors a few weeks apart, and the last one was lost on 25/7 this year - the adult teeth still have not appeared.

    How long should it take an adult tooth to come through?

    My DP still has a baby tooth! Teeth amaze me sometimes. Maybe talk to a dentist if you are unsure.

    I've just called the dentist and was told that it can take up to a year, it depends on where the tooth is in the gum when the baby tooth is lost.

    They can take an X-ray to see where it is if I'm really worried. I think I'll give it til the start of school next year before I call the dentist.
