I'm currently 16 years old, and I've been having some problems with growing in my adult teeth. I've lost all of my baby teeth, and some of the ones I've lost around 2 or 3 years ago, still haven't grown in. When the dentist did a x-ray of my teeth, he assured that my adult teeth were in my gum's, just taking a while to come down. Is there anything at all i can take or do to speed up the process of getting my adult teeth in? The two teeth I am referring to are both of my canines.

  • This is common problem with canines. They take time to come out. It has to be seen whether the space is enough for them to come out and if they are coming in proper position otherwise if the space is not enough then the space has to be created or if they are impacted or not coming in proper angulation then surgically they have to be exposed and pulled out in proper position.
