Most of the time the baby tooth will fall out eventually. If it doesn't seem to be getting loose, it should be removed by a dentist so it doesn't cause adult teeth to be crowded or crooked.

One dentist's website said it can be 6 months or more before the adult tooth comes in.

If the baby tooth is just about to fall out, the situation will probably resolve itself naturally. If the baby tooth still seems to be firmly rooted, it is best to consult a dentist, because the baby tooth stop the adult tooth from coming through straight.

Once you have hit puberty you will get hair growing in places you never had it before. It is all about growing up and becoming an adult. This is a natural place for hair to grow on the male body.

Babies and young children don't have any adult teeth. Baby teeth fall out before permanent teeth emerge through the gum, or if baby teeth have not fallen out before, an emerging permanent tooth pushes the baby one out. In some cases, a permanent tooth can push up either in front of or behind a baby tooth and dental services are needed to remove the baby tooth and to straighten the adult tooth's alignment.

Your teeth stop growing after they are an adult tooth.
