    Missing Teeth

    Hi girls

    Just a quick question I've been meaning to ask for a while.

    Emily nearly has all the teeth she should have... she is only missing one... one of her bottom incisors. Not the first ones to come up, but the second lot of bottom incisors that are supposed to come up.

    It now looks as though there isn't enough room for it if it does pop up... has anyone heard of teeth never appearing??

    Hmm.. interesting question.. I'd be headed to the dentist for a check-up on that.

    Hey,
    My daughter has a condition (her father does too) called Ectodermal Dysplagia.
    One of the symptoms is hypodontia or missing teeth.
    There are lots of other syptoms that go along with and there is a very broard spectrum that ranges from mild to severe.

    Hmmm... that is interesting... I just did a read on the disorder, but I don't think that is the answer (not positive tho). I think maybe I should get it checked out....??
