Hello and welcome to hcm,

Its not clear that which tooth you lost recently and how many permanent teeth got erupted.
Usually your permanent successor may be erupted already.
The retained milk teeth has lost now.
Please do get a check-up with your dentist.
If any of your permanent teeth has not erupted,an x-ray will help to find out the condition of tooth.
Treatment can be planned based on this.
Take care

Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

If you have lost your deciduous tooth now ,that shows it was retained deciduous tooth.

If it has fallen on its own that means probably the permanent bud is pushing it and roots are resorbed normally.

To confirm the presence of permanent teeth visit your dentist and get an x ray done .you can clearly see your permanent tooth there.

Hope it helps.


Take care.

Thanks for asking the query,

Sometimes milk teeth falls very late, this can be due to impacted permanent tooth or even absence of the permanent tooth.

I would suggest you to visit to an Orthodontist, take an OPG radiograph,
impacted permanent can be guided with the help of orthodontic appliances to errupt in the oral cavity.

If the permanent tooth bud is present in position and is pushing the roots of decidous tooth causing its exfoliation, so there is no need to worry, it will errupt by its own, this can be confirmed by x-ray.

Hope this helps out.

If you have lost your milk teeth, you can get an X ray taken to see if the permanent tooth is present in your jaw. Sometimes the tooth could be impacted as a result it will remain within the bone.

sometimes milk teeth falls really late like in ur case. Go for a radiograph known as orthopantogram (OPG), take ur dentist's advice.
