Customer Question

Hello. I am 19 years old and I have one baby tooth. I have made an x ray recently and the dentist said that the permanent tooth has moved and I have to do a surgery in to remove the baby tooth and move the permanent tooth back to its place, and it will come back in 4 months. Do you know what is this surgery name?

and how much it costs money here in the UK? and where can I do it?

Thanks

Dr. K. :

Theres no specific term for this procedure Its just an extraction of a baby tooth. The term for having multiple baby teeth into adulthood is called hypodontia.

Dr. K. :

It can be done by your dentist in the UK and costs will vary widely due to the area and the differences.
