Q.

teenager baby teeth

When I was younger i did not loose all my baby-teeth .I lost my central incisors when I was 8 and permanent teeth grew back.I lost 1 lateral incisors at age 14 and it grew back and now i'm 19 and have just lost the other baby tooth lateral incisor.I'm worried that it wont grow back because maybe my roots might have grown stronger.Do I have anything to worry about??

Hello, it is advisable to have an x-ray taken this will show exactly where the permanent tooth is situated and whether it is being prevented from erupting due to 1 reason or another.
