    Hello,

    My son has not been getting his permanent teeth. He is 8 and these are his upper front 4 teeth. The dentist last year took out his baby teeth but the permanent teeth are still not coming out. The same dentist took another x-ray and said he has a mesiodens which is blocking the permanent teeth from coming out. I have the picture of the x-ray. Can somebody look at it and give me an opinion ? I would really appreciate it. At this point my insurance won't cover a 2nd opinion from another dentist so any help would be greatly appreciated.

      While I cannot comment on your son's case, it is not unusual for mesiodens to block the eruption of the permanent teeth. In some cases eruption happens normally, but in other cases it does not. Each case is different and you will not get anyone on this type of forum to give you a professional opinion without an examination.
