Does A Lower Canine That Just Grows At 21 Years Old Need To Be Removed?
Hello doc. I want to ask, now I am 21 years old but there are new teeth appearing. Precisely in the lower canine teeth, my canines are still there tpi new teeth that grow in the inside of my mouth close to the canines. Should it be revoked?
Hello Wasil, Thank you for the question.
Every human being will generally experience tooth growth twice, namely the growth of baby teeth and permanent tooth growth. Milk teeth that grow as children will fall out and one by one tooth will be replaced by permanent teeth. Permanent teeth will begin to appear at the age of 6-7 years, occurring gradually in each tooth until the growth of the second molars at the age of 12-13 years. The last permanent tooth to grow is the third molars / wisdom teeth which will appear at the end of the age of 20 years.
New tooth growth at the age of 21 years may be caused because you have excess teeth. This abnormal growth can cause food debris to accumulate between teeth that are not easily cleaned, which can further cause damage to the teeth. In addition, this condition can also interfere with the process of chewing, but it depends on the position of the teeth that are just growing. A good recommendation at this time is to consult with the nearest dentist so that he can be examined immediately so that the doctor understands the condition of your teeth before determining further treatment. Tooth extraction may be one of the ways the doctor recommends to overcome this condition. However, it is best to postpone consultation with the dentist until the corona virus outbreak situation improves. You are advised to go to the nearest dentist immediately if you experience severe toothache symptoms with swelling of the gums. Meanwhile, you are advised to keep brushing your teeth twice a day regularly and using dental floss to help clean teeth.
Hopefully this information helps you.
