Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • I would suggest visiting a pedodontist (specialist dentist for handling babies and children) or a general dentist for a check up.
  • An x-ray might also be required to check the teeth development. Once we see where the problem lies, we can decide on the treatment.
  • Sometimes, due to the hard skin (mucosa), there is a delay in eruption, and intervention is required.
