Hello Ahmad Akbar Thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Canines or canines usually grow at the age of 16 to 22 months and will then date at the age of 10 to 12 years. In general there are some differences between baby teeth and permanent teeth, namely the number, shape and structure of teeth.
The total or number of milk teeth is usually 20 and permanent teeth are 32. The size of permanent teeth is usually bigger than milk teeth and has longer and bigger roots than milk teeth.
The enamel layer of milk teeth is usually thinner than permanent teeth so the color of milk teeth is usually whiter than permanent teeth in general. A thin layer of enamel and dentin on the milk teeth also makes it easier for teeth to suffer damage and cavities.
You should be advised to consult directly with the dentist, because to be able to distinguish between permanent teeth and baby teeth need to be examined directly by your dentist. Do not forget to take care of your teeth by brushing your teeth regularly every day and it is recommended to routinely have your teeth checked every six months.
