    Default Upper Front teeth ‘dropping’

    My LO is nearly 5. I’ve noticed the gum line of his two front teeth sort of dropping/dipping out of alignment with his other teeth.
    Is this just caused by his adult teeth starting to shift down? Or something I should look into further? His teeth have been beautifully straight before now.

    They say that a first orthodontist appointment should be around age 7.

    Does he still have his baby teeth or are they already adult teeth?

    Oh I see, you mean you think adult teeth are pushing babies lower? Probably, but don’t make any assumptions about what they will look like until the top 4 adults come in.
