Q.

Milk tooth that never came out.

Hi,

I am 32 years of age, i have a small toot that never came out as a kid. I have a fine set of teeth but this one is the odd one out. When i take X-rays, it shows that there is a tooth tha's stuck on my gum. I just want to know if the one that is stuck on the gum will come out if i remove the milk tooth. The reason i want to remove it that is is loose and i can't even bite with my left teeth.

usually the permanent tooth in a case like yours does not erupt after the milk tooth is extracted.
