Molar Teeth That Are Extracted At The Age Of 13, Can They Still Grow Again?
Hello, I want to ask, I am 13 years old and my upper molars can’t be maintained anymore. The doctor advised to pull it out. My question: can my revoked teeth grow again. Please answer
Hello Adhith, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Human teeth can basically be divided into 2 types, namely milk teeth and permanent teeth. Milk teeth are teeth that first grow after a person is born and this type of tooth will experience removal in time to be replaced with permanent teeth. In general, the molars will experience a change into permanent teeth when entering the age of 9-12 years. But it can also differ depending on each individual.
Based on the above properties, then if the damage occurs in the milk teeth and requires extraction, then the tooth will be replaced by permanent teeth. However, if damage and extraction occurs in the permanent teeth, the teeth will not be replaced and there will be no further tooth growth so that the teeth will disappear for life.
Regarding your own condition, it all depends on what type of tooth has been damaged, whether your baby teeth or permanent teeth, if based on general theory, then most likely your molars are permanent teeth so it is most likely that if extractions are not replaced by new teeth .
I hope this helps.
