Third molar eruption
Sir Greetings My son aged 2 yrs (b:20/1/2014) is developing third molar's. As such he is not displaying any maladies but as parents we are concerned as to he having almost all his teeth prematurely. He is also underweight at 11kgs and short stature at ~81 cms. Please advise us if our concern mentioned above needs to be addressed clinically. Thanks Harmeek

Hi....it can't be 3 rd molar,so,need not to worry, and for premature eruption of teeth, I would like to suggest to visit your dentist because tooth eruption time is a range of time,so don't assume anything and visit your dentist. ..
