My son's first 4 teeth have come in all at once, but now that they are growing, they are becoming quite crooked. He really loves to chew on very hard things like wood blocks and such, and I'm wondering if that is affecting the growth. But I'm also wondering if I should really be worried at all. Do the teeth right themselves as they grow? Does it really matter since they aren't permanent, anyway?

I would go talk to a pediatric dentist. That's how I found out my son had an extra tooth. They would know more than anyone. They will probably do X-rays and other things. Let me know how you decide to go. Good luck.

I second the answer about going to dentist. And I think that it might matter, because although they aren't permanent, they might affect how the permanent teeth come out.
