, I want to ask whether the molars at the age of 15 years can grow again?? It was only a year ago that my back molars erupted and now they just fell out. Can it grow again?

1 Answer:

Hi Hasanah,

Thank you for the question. Milk teeth that grow when children will fall out and are replaced with permanent teeth. Tooth growth generally starts from the incisors (central incisors followed by lateral incisors), the first molars, the canines, then the second molars. When these teeth fall out, the first teeth to fall out are the incisors and the last are the second molars.

The first molars (upper and lower jaws) will generally fall out at the age of 9-11 years, while the second molars (upper and lower jaws) will generally fall out at the age of 10-12 years. After these teeth fall out, they will be replaced by permanent teeth. If these permanent teeth fall out for some reason, then the growth of teeth can not occur again. However, you need to know, your wisdom teeth (third molars) will only appear in your late teens or early 20s.

Don't forget to always keep your teeth healthy by brushing your teeth at least twice a day and having regular check-ups with the dentist. If you have dental health problems, do not hesitate to consult a dentist immediately.

I hope this helps.

Dr. Aloisia
