Will it grow back even though it's an adult tooth?

Hi there !
My tooth is getting pulled out because it is loose and once it gets pulled out it is going to affect my smile and I will just be embarrassed to do anything just having a hole there. :( It is at the front of my mouth at the bottom the 2nd double tooth on the right of your bottom teeth!! Will it grow back even though it's an adult tooth?

I really hope it does. Could the dentist do anything to make my tooth grow back ? I'm 14 so would an adult tooth grow back if you are young or it will not ! I really would like to know how it can grow back cause I don't want an effected smile and walk around having 1 tooth out and being toothless ??

Please tell me what I can do so I won't live my life misserably ?

Unfortunately, adult teeth do not grow back. Gosh, wouldn't that be great! No more dentures, bridges, implants, etc. If you can afford it (I don't know about health/dental insurance or prices in Australia), I think your best bet would be an implant loaded with a fake tooth. I'm not a dentist, so you need to get a couple of dentist's opinion's and prices. Good Luck!

Hi Nayzee,

Adult teeth do not replace themselves. Wouldn't that be great if they did, though? The most "natural" option is to replace the tooth with a dental implant. However, you will need to be a little older to allow your mouth and anatomy to finish developing...closer to 18 years of age before it can be placed.

In the meantime, your dentist may fix you with a "flipper" (like a retainer with a fake tooth) or a Maryland bridge. Know your options ahead of time, keep the space from collapsing and then plan for an implant later on!

Good luck

Nice one. I’m not really sure about this. I had undergone this procedure several years back. There has not been a replacement ever since then. I have heard people talk otherwise. Anyway, I’m interested to know the exact details. read more
