My kids teeth won't grow?

                        I have a 9 yr old daughter who lost her top teeth (naturally fell out) just over 1.5 years ago.  They still haven't grown in.  In fact, she has lost 6 teeth on the bottom, 3 teeth on the top, and has only grown in her two middle teeth on the bottom.  Her other teeth do show up in an X-ray.  You can imagine how embarrassed she is at school.  I am very worried!  Will I end up doing cosmetic dentistry?  Will they grow in?  What is going on?

Thanks to anyone who can help,
Dad

    This could turn into a problem. If she is under 3-4 years old, it is possible that her teeth havent formed yet. The best thing to do would indefinatly be to go to your local dentistry clinic and have a chat to the dentist about it. 
    
    I really hope this helps and good luck!
