Dr. Augustyn – Shark teeth!
Weekly I receive a call slip on my desk asking about the over retained baby teeth or the infamous “shark tooth” parents. No, our children are not supposed to have double layers, so if they present like this and the permanent tooth is a quarter to half way erupted and the baby teeth still aren’t mobile it may be time to seek professional assistance. Rest assured it is one of the easiest procedures I perform, and they will be more than comfortable. Also, parents often ask, “what will happen with those adult teeth that are all the way back there?”. In the next two weeks they will drift forward and be in a very nice position. So, no worries we’re here to help should shark teeth enter your home.
