Can A 13 Year Old Child’s Front Tooth Extracted Grow Back?
Dr .. can the child’s front teeth grow back at the age of 13 years or not .. thx
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Generally, the front teeth (incisors) begin to grow when a child is 8 to 15 months old. Furthermore, in the process of development, these front teeth will fall out when the child is 6 to 9 years old. There are also children whose front teeth fall out first, for example as a result of being hit by a collision or due to inadequate dental care so that they have cavities and then shake and fall out. After that, these front teeth will be replaced with permanent teeth (adult teeth) at the age of 6 to 9 years.
By the time you are 13 years old, it is likely that your child's front teeth are all permanent teeth. Therefore, if you pull it out, it will no longer grow new teeth.
Need to clarify beforehand, for what reason do you want to pull out your child's front tooth? Is it because it is broken, perforated, or something? Is there absolutely no remaining crown of the tooth that can be preserved so that it needs to be removed?
We recommend that you first consult regarding the condition of your child's teeth to the nearest dentist. Dentists certainly know more about the right treatment to solve your child's dental problems. If it is true that extraction is needed, the doctor may also recommend that your child use dentures or dental implants to fill in the empty tooth gap after extraction. This needs to be done in addition to improving cosmetics, as well as to keep the jaw structure from shifting.
Hope this helps ..
