Milk Teeth Are Still Intact And Do Not Come Off At The Age Of 19 Years?
why my teeth are still baby teeth, and only a few have changed to adult teeth? even though I am 19 years old … will it be a problem later?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Each person has a set of baby teeth and a set of permanent teeth, which will appear and be replaced in accordance with their respective times. But often, the milk teeth do not go out, and permanent teeth do not grow. This will not cause problems, and need not worry and does not require further treatment. Because indeed, not all baby teeth must be dated.
Although indeed, in some cases, permanent teeth eventually grow. But because the milk teeth are still there, finally the permanent teeth push the milk teeth, or actually grow to fill the empty space, making the teeth become messy and untidy. Against this condition, we do not need to deliberately pull out milk teeth. Because if it turns out after we pull out, permanent teeth still do not come out, then we will be toothless.
All we can do is wait, and if it turns out that our teeth really are not neat, then we will trim them using a stirrup, retainer, or other methods that can be discussed with your dentist. But as long as there are no complaints, and the composition of your teeth are still neat, no need to worry even though your baby teeth last until adulthood. So, hopefully answering your question.
