The tooth behind the canine tooth in an 8 year old is a baby molar.Can you upload a picture of the tooth so that I can get an idea of the severity of the break?Do you have a specific concern?

Thank u I will take him to the dentist. My main concern was it a big molar. Just was not sure. Thank for your advice
Dentist: Dr. Katz, Dentist (DDS or equivalent) replied 1 year ago

It is no problem. These teeth will fall out in a couple of years by themselves and will be replaced by the bicuspid teeth.They are not the permanent molars

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
