Canine Teeth Are Still Milk Teeth At The Age Of 18 Years?
, the root of my milk canine teeth has not come off until now, can it still grow? I am almost 18 years old. thank you
Hello Najwa, Thank you for the question.
Every human will experience twice the growth of teeth which is the growth of baby teeth and permanent tooth growth. The time of growth and the date of milk teeth varies considerably from person to person. However, for canine milk teeth generally will date at 10-12 years for the upper jaw and ages 9-12 years for the lower jaw. Unmatched baby teeth may be caused by the absence of permanent teeth that are replacing baby teeth or stunted permanent tooth growth so that the baby teeth do not go out. In this condition, it is recommended that you consult with your dentist further. Your doctor will examine your teeth and take x-rays to determine the cause. After ascertaining the cause, the doctor will provide further treatment. Meanwhile, please keep your teeth clean by brushing your teeth regularly, twice a day.
I hope this helps.
