23 Years Old Still Has A Lot Of Baby Teeth?
Tonight, I want to askrnrn2 times I checked my teeth (the distance is not close) and now I haven’t checked again, at that time the doctors said that my teeth were mostly milk teeth (there were 13 teeth) even though I was 23 years old. .rnrnDoc, can my teeth fall out one by one? And if the date can grow back?rnThen why do you think you can be an adult but still have baby teeth.rnrnThank you
Good Evening Haputri,
Milk teeth normally fall out gradually and are replaced by permanent teeth starting at the age of 6 years. The cause of milk teeth that have not come out can be because permanent teeth do not have a strong driving force to grow, or even do not have permanent teeth.
An effort that you can do now is to return to the dentist to discuss and ask whether a panoramic x-ray is necessary to determine the anatomical structure of your jaw, and also to find out if you have permanent teeth. After the examination, the doctor can give the right treatment, if necessary the doctor will recommend the extraction of the milk tooth (of course, after making sure that there are permanent tooth seeds that can grow to replace the extracted milk tooth). If the X-ray results show that there are no permanent teeth, then it is very likely that if your baby teeth are removed, permanent teeth will not grow.
So hopefully it can help.
