Can A Baby Tooth Broken At The Age Of 17 Grow Back?
I want to ask, tomorrow, April 19, I’m 17, but I still have baby teeth, if the tooth breaks when it breaks, can it grow again?rnThank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Under normal circumstances, all baby teeth have fallen out after you are over 15 years old. So, it needs to be clarified first, do you mean the teeth you mean are milk teeth? Have you ever consulted a dentist?
The last baby teeth to fall out are usually canines or second molars. These teeth can fall out in the age range of 10 to 15 years, then replaced with permanent teeth. So, if your current age is 17 years, then most likely the teeth you mean are permanent teeth, not milk teeth. If then this permanent tooth is broken or lost, then of course it will not grow back.
However, if you are in doubt, you can try to make sure by going to the dentist. The doctor can evaluate the condition of your teeth and mouth carefully to assess whether the tooth is a milk tooth or not. You can also do a panoramic x-ray examination to further clarify it.
In order to maintain the health of your teeth and mouth, so that there are no broken teeth, you should regularly brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste. Complete the cleaning steps above by using dental floss and an antiseptic mouthwash. Limit the consumption of foods that contain high carbohydrates and are acidic, especially at bedtime. Do not forget, always check your dental and oral health regularly to the dentist at least every 6 months.
Hope it helps ya..
