Tonight, I have a 2-year-old son, front teeth tend to be forward (tonggos), will this also happen to the permanent teeth if the baby teeth later date?

1 Answer:

Hi Aisha,

The growth of forward teeth or commonly called tonggos can be caused by heredity, habits or the shape and size of the jaw or teeth that are not appropriate. Although it can seem trivial, this condition can actually interfere with oral health. Furthermore, this condition can cause appearance disturbances or discomfort due to inferiority.

Actually there is no guarantee that permanent teeth will grow normally / buckled even though the milk teeth are in a condition that is bent and vice versa. The problem is that teeth that are bent on can be caused by a variety of things including disruption in the direction of growth (malocclusion), habits and narrow jaws.

Therefore, I strongly recommend that your child be examined by a dentist so that the process of tooth growth takes place properly and avoid interference with the direction of tooth growth. Your dentist can take the form of extraction of certain teeth or orthodontic treatment to improve the position of the teeth if needed.
