Remove Milk Teeth In Adulthood And Use Braces?
I have a new milk tooth dislodged now (I’m 20 years old) I want to ask what other permanent teeth can be closed again to close the gap of my milk teeth that come off or I rake teeth using braces? thanks.
In childhood humans normally have 20 milk teeth, 10 in the upper jaw and 10 in the lower jaw. These baby teeth will be dated and replaced with permanent teeth. This process varies in time, starting from the front teeth / incisors at the age of 6-7 years, teens to the back teeth, and also until the age of 20 years for eruption of the back teeth of the molars (wisdom tooth), although not everyone experiencing eruption of the molars. The total permanent teeth in an adult can be 32, 16 in the upper jaw, 16 in the lower jaw.
Adults who still have wisdom teeth, can occur if there are no dental seeds to replace the wisdom teeth, for example in dental agenesis conditions. Knowing whether there is a permanent tooth seed that will replace your missing wisdom teeth can be done with a panoramic x-ray. If there is no tooth seed in the jaw in the wisdom tooth, then the area will be forever empty / toothless.
The use of braces to straighten teeth requires consideration and prior examination with an orthodontist specialist dentist. Braces installation is an action that requires periodic evaluation and control with a dentist at a cost that is also not cheap. The type of braces that are installed must also be adjusted to the conditions of your dental abnormalities. Please check with a dental specialist to be able to determine the next step that is right for your current condition. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
