I'm 20 and my baby canine teeth on my right upper jaw is really loose and falling out and I can see the permanent one coming in. I'm just wondering if I should get it extracted or just wait for the permanent teeth to push it out? I'm insecure and the thought of one missing front teeth worries me. If I get it extracted how long does it take to grow in?

  • Normally this baby canine sheds around age of 9-10 years and permanent adult canine replaces it. However now if at the age of 20 years, it is being loose, you have to show it to dentist and get xray done to see whether the permanent adult tooth, which you can see coming in, is exactly coming or it has enough space to come in. There must be some reason that it has not come on the scheduled time. So go ahead and fix an appointment and get it examined. for more info on dentition, you can check this link in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-dentition-64.aspx
