1 Answer:

Hello, Tiara. Permanent teeth that have not emerged and have passed the time of eruption (tooth extraction) to replace milk teeth (primary teeth) that have fallen out, can have various reasons. This delay process is known as delayed eruption of permanent tooth. There are many factors that cause delayed eruption of permanent teeth. This can be caused, among others:

The presence of scar tissue due to trauma
There is no room for teeth to grow in as there are too many teeth or the growing space is filled with other teeth.
trauma to primary teeth
Deficiency of nutrients such as calcium
Genetic disorders such as Down syndrome
jaw abnormalities

In general, the replacement of the baby teeth takes place between 6 months - 1 year. If within that time span or reaches 1 year or more the child's permanent teeth have not grown, it is better to immediately consult a dentist. The doctor will perform a clinical examination and take a panoramic photo. From this panoramic photo, it can be seen whether or not the permanent tooth germ is present or whether there are other causative factors. In addition, from the panoramic photo, the doctor will find out the factors causing the delayed growth of the child's permanent teeth and plan the next treatment. Examples of treatments that may be carried out are the use of orthodontic appliances or tools to gain space in the jaw arch, treat systemic disorders, and so on.
