Can Teeth Grow Again After Impact?
Hello, I want to ask my child just aged – + 6 years old. Upper front milk teeth only sprouted a few months ago. Every day, his teeth knocked against the wall so that they could fall out if they could still grow more slowly.

Tooth growth occurs in two stages, namely the beginning of the growth of baby teeth in childhood and changes into permanent teeth before the age of 6 or 7 years. As is the case with upper front milk teeth or milk incisors, these teeth begin to grow at the age of 8 months, and will be replaced by permanent or permanent gigig teeth when the child is around 6 or 8 years old, but each child has a time span different. So if your child is currently 6 years old, and the upper front teeth have just grown or the upper front incisors have only grown in a few months, then the possibility of these teeth growing are permanent teeth or permanent teeth. If this permanent tooth is broken, the upper front permanent teeth cannot grow back.
The existence of trauma, fall or impact on the tooth or mouth area can result in loose or broken teeth, so that if the permanent teeth are loose (due to new growth at the age of 6 years) then the loose or dislodged teeth cannot grow anymore. Thus, there is space between empty teeth. Some of the side effects after teething leps in childhood are empty spaces between teeth, uneven growth of teeth, good esthetic tooth growth, and malocclusion or disruption to close the mouth well.
However, all of this needs to be ascertained directly with the dentist. The doctor will do a direct examination and if necessary, a dental radiological examination can be done to determine the condition of your child's teeth and the presence or absence of dental seeds. If indeed the results of the examination by a dentist ensure that no permanent upper teeth are found, then further treatment can be done, such as by the installation of dentures, so that the space between the teeth remains good and there are no other permanent tooth growth disorders. Or your dentist is planning other treatments according to the results of the examination done.
For now, you can invite your child to consult directly with the dentist, so that as early as possible appropriate treatment for your child's dental problems can be done.
If dental trauma occurs, and if the permanent tooth is removed after a collision, then try within 15-60 minutes, the permanent permanent tooth can be inserted into the tooth socket or stored in liquid milk, then immediately to the dentist so that the recovery process can be expected runs well. However, if it has been more than 60 minutes, the chances of recovering permanent teeth are getting smaller.
Thus the info we can convey.
