Dr. Craig R. Fisk answered:

Can you tell whether a tooth is a baby tooth or permanent tooth, if you don't recall it falling out?

Yes

Baby
You can tell because baby teeth look different than adult teeth. They are usually smaller versions of the adult tooth. If you still are not sure, visit your dentist and he or she can tell by looking at it or taking an Xray. There you can also find out what happened to the adult tooth.

Dr. Meng K. Syn answered:

What do you do if a permanent tooth falls out?

Get an Xray

Bones
See your dentist and get an Xray of the site to make sure there are no pieces of the tooth under the gums. The dentist can give you options after he examines the area and surrounding bone. You have many options. A few are , do nothing, place an implant or bridge, build a removable prosthetic to replace the tooth, or move another tooth into the space with orthodontics.

Got a permanent tooth extracted and never got an impact so the teeth close by are falling into that place. well invisalign correct this?

Implant or Bridge?

Invisalign
Invisalign can be used to correct this problem if the "tipping" is not too advanced. Most often, when a tooth is removed, the adjacent teeth tip, drift or rotate into that space. Depending on the length of time that the tooth has been missing, the severity of the problem may preclude the use of Invisalign to correct your problem. Sometimes, a combination of braces and Invisalign can work!

Can having a baby tooth knocked out affect a permanent tooth? While on vacation, our son trip and knocked out one of his front baby teeth. We were quite a ways away from any dentist, and were not able to get there in time for the dentist to do anything. H

Should be OK

Baby_teeth
However, if other front teeth missing may need space maintainer. If back tooth lost early must have space maintainer. Your son should be checked for gum lacerations, fractured-off root, displacement or damage to underlying permanent tooth, and bone fractures. This is a situation where a Pediatric Dentist, a specialist in childrens' dentistry, should be consulted.

How long dose it take for a permanent tooth to grow out completely?

Depends

Bone
There is no true time to say like 3 mnths or 6 months or anything like that. if it appears to be slow maybe an x-ray is necessary to determine the reason why it is 'slow'. Roots do not completely form in the bone for 2-3 years after eruption starts

There is no reason to treat the loss of that tooth any differently.

loose permanent tooth because baby tooth with permanent tooth growing in behind it is pushing it out. on 13 year old son.?

Orthodontics

Orthodontist
This is a good time to see your orthodontist. As it sounds like your son may be a little behind schedule. Normally around 12 years of age is when the baby teeth should be exfoliated. The Orthodontist can make a treatment plan that can help your son for life. Make sure that he has good brushing habits as this will greatly effect the results of any orthodontic appliance.

Dr. Eyal Simchi answered:

Are space maintainers removed as soon as the permanent tooth starts erupting? Our son needs to have a space maintainer put in after having a baby tooth knocked out, and I'd like to know at what point they are generally removed. .

Yes

Head-teeth
generally they are removed when the tooth they are holding space for erupts. There are times when the maintainer is left for other orthodontic purposes. Not every missing tooth needs a space maintainer. Generally if the tooth missing is one of the front 4 a space maintainer is not indicated.
