Seeing your child's baby teeth be replaced with permanent teeth can be an exciting time. The process begins when children are 5 or 6 years old. The front teeth come in first, and soon after, the first molars follow. These teeth are sometimes called the "6-year molars," and kids have two on the bottom and two on top.
Sometimes, these new molars have an abnormal shape, which can be alarming for parents. Mulberry molars are one type of abnormality that can occur, resulting in teeth that have many small bumps, like mulberry fruits, explains the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine.
