The Front Tooth Of An 11-year-old Boy Is Broken?
Hello doctor, r n r nI want to ask, my 11-year-old sister has a broken upper front tooth due to a fall. At that age, can your teeth grow again or what?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Often, at the age of 11 years, incisors (front teeth) have indeed changed from baby teeth to adult teeth (permanent teeth). Therefore, if there is a problem with this tooth, then it will no longer be replaced by new teeth.
Need to be clarified beforehand, what is the condition of your brother's broken teeth? Is it broken in whole or in part? After the fracture, is the fracture treated properly? When exactly did the broken tooth occur?
A broken tooth, if treated properly, is actually not impossible to be reconnected. However, many ordinary people do not know this, thus ignoring tooth fractures, and making tooth fractures irreparable.
In these conditions the doctor can provide alternative other solutions, for example with dental fillings, crowns, or dentures. The selection of this type of treatment must be adjusted to many factors, including the condition of the remaining broken teeth, the health condition of the patient, the availability of facilities, and various other factors (including economic factors).
We suggest that you take your younger sibling to check his condition directly to the nearest dentist to find the best solution according to his condition.
I hope this helps.
