Hello, good evening Dina Oks ..
The timing of teething for each baby varies, usually new baby teeth begin to grow at the age of 6 months to 1 year, although teething may occur before this time, there are even some babies who are born already have milk teeth. After growing, baby teeth will fall out at various times for each child, and then these baby teeth will be replaced with permanent teeth. Generally, baby teeth begin to fall out at the age of 6 to 7 years, starting in the area of the upper and lower front incisors.
In your child's case, there are two possible conditions. The first possibility is that something you describe appearing on your child's lower teeth is not actually a baby tooth, but is another condition that resembles teething, and then disappears over time. The presence of a white appearance on the gums of a child that resembles teeth can be caused by:
cysts on the gums. This is not dangerous and can disappear by itself calcium deposits in the gums, which usually disappear after a few weeks The second possibility, it could be that your child's teeth have grown, but for some reason, for example, they fall / hit and then the tooth breaks . However, this condition is very rare.
To be sure, it requires a direct examination by a dentist. Therefore, we recommend that you check your baby's condition with a dentist (especially a dentist who specializes in Pediatric Dentistry). The dentist will perform a thorough examination, and may require additional examinations such as a dental X-ray. While waiting for the appointment with the dentist, you can still do gum care for your child, namely by cleaning the baby's gums using a clean, soft, slightly damp cloth to gently rub the baby's gums.
That's all, hope this helps ...
