Is it weird for a 17 year old to not have lost all the milk teeth?

Dr. Lawrence Wasser
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: That is unusual. Check with a dentist.
Dr. Arnold Malerman
Orthodontics 53 years experience
Yes: Could be missing or impacted permanent teeth. I'm sure this would have been discussed with you if you were going for regular dental check-ups (and x-rays). Please make a dental appointment asap. Who knows what else may be happening.
