My son, just became 5 years old, had his molars (all 4 of the lower jaw, 2 on each side)removed recently. Doctor said those were beyond repairable. The doctor said the permanent (adult) molars will grow soon. But I found that the first permanent molars will come out at around 9 years old and the second ones at around 11 years old, and so on.
My concern is that how he's going to chew foods without lower molars. He can chew foods using his front teeth, but it will be very difficult to eat.
Does he have to wait until permanent molars come out, or he has to wear a denture?
Thanks in advance.
