Teeth Growth In Adulthood?
Excuse me, I want to ask. I am a 20 year old woman 149cm tall. My teeth still have a few baby teeth in the lower front. And wisdom teeth haven’t grown yet. My upper teeth grow limply at the top. There are two teeth hidden in the front teeth. I want to see a dentist, but I don’t know what I will complain about because I don’t feel sick. Also I feel I can’t afford the cost problem. Could you please suggest what I do?
Hello mr. Satisfactory,
Humans have 2 types of teeth during their lives, namely milk teeth and permanent teeth. Milk teeth begin to grow from the age of 6 months or older to 20 milk teeth. Furthermore, from the age of 6-7 years milk teeth will start to date and replaced by permanent teeth. Permanent teeth will total a total of 32 pieces. In some people, the back teeth / wisdom teeth will only grow as adults and this does not matter as long as they do not interfere with the process of chewing food.
Regarding milk teeth that are still in the lower front, it needs to be confirmed again whether they are still milk teeth or not and at the same time also ascertain whether there are dental teeth or not. Whereas overlapping teeth may require further treatment with a dentist, for example using braces.
Therefore, I suggest that you consult directly with the dentist so that you can be sure of the condition of your teeth. You can submit a complaint that you feel, for example there are still baby teeth, piled teeth, and wisdom teeth have not yet grown. Handling will be given in accordance with the results of the examination, for example with braces if necessary. Whereas for baby teeth and wisdom teeth that have not yet grown, it may be enough to observe only as long as no disturbing complaints appear.
Hope it helps you,
