My four yr old just knocked out his front baby tooth to the root. Will his adult teeth still grown in or will he need a fake tooth?

  • The adult tooth comes at the age of approx. 7 years. Your son lost the baby tooth at the age of 4 years. So the adult tooth will come at the age of 7 years. In case of premature loss some times the eruption of the adut tooth is enchanced and some times it is dekayed. it depends upon many factors like the development of the permanent tooth bud and the amount of bone at the time of loss.
