Milk Teeth Are Not Separated Until Adulthood?
Hello Doctor, my baby’s upper left tooth until now 28 years old has not come off and is it still able to grow again? and now there is damage.
Hello. Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Milk teeth are teeth that grow in infancy, which are around the age of 6 months and will usually date around the age of 6 years and at the age of 13 years will be replaced entirely by permanent teeth. In some cases and individuals have baby teeth that have not been dated, it would be better if a more precise memory is carried out whether it is not yet dated. If yes, it should be examined by a dentist so that it can be seen whether it is actually milk teeth and if so, further examination will be carried out with photos to see if there are permanent teeth still immersed in the gums.
If there is then usually the doctor will start thinking about removing baby teeth so that permanent teeth have a suitable place to grow and this can prevent the occurrence of uneven teeth (malocclusion or barking). But if it turns out the tooth is a permanent tooth then it must be maintained properly because there are no other replacement teeth. The thing to maintain the condition of dental health is
- Brush your teeth regularly and gently
- Use toothpaste that contains fuiorida
- Gargle regularly with antiseptics
- Avoid foods that involve using string to clear it
- Drink enough
That's the thing we can say. May be useful. Thank you
