I can't help because DS's teeth were through before his baby ones had even fallen out. We were concerned about that! I would take her back to the dentist if you are concerned.

I would go back to the dentist.

When dd's teeth fell out, the new ones were underneath. I could just see the tips. However, hers were wobbly for ages before they fell out (a good few months) but 8 months seems a long time.

So long as they're there under the gum, I wouldn't worry. Ds lost all four of his top incisors last year and has had just the primary ones for the best part of a year, with the secondary incisors only just coming through now. Because a couple of his cousins just don't have (genetically) those top secondary incisors I checked with the dentist and she said as long as they show up on the X-ray, and there's room for them to come in (ie they're not being blocked) it's just a waiting game.

I wouldnt worry, if they were wobbly there should be something under there.

Little tale for you~
My sister fell over and knocked both of her front teeth out when she was just 2 years old. All her playgroup and early school pics she has no front teeth! My Mums only concern is that she would end up with a speech impediment, but she was fine.

DS1 knocked out his middle top two incisors in February 05 and they are still not through (he's 8 in August), but the dentist can see them and in fact one is about to cut now. Yippee!

His middle bottom 2 fell out naturally in August 04, but only one grew through for ages. It was a full year before the other one started coming in.

He's now lost the outer 2 incisors at the bottom, so is very gappy!
