Hello, Welcome to ICLINIQ
This is your Dentist -
First of all you will be needing an OPG, its a full mouth view xray , extraction of the decidious teeths as found in the Xray will be done.
Now its turn to see where those impacted permanent tooths are present . Hopefully they will errupt a bit late , but they have no tendenxy to erupts they will be removed. If needed ortho treatment at 16 years of age (minimum)
So for now Get to your Dentist get an Opg done and get all those baby tooths extracted.
You can also upload the xray to me so I can assist you more. You are a good kid , donot worry ... am here to help you when even you need . Focus on your grades .
Avoid too much sweet food or chochlates or sticky foods . Brush twice and donot forget to rinse. Your teeth will be fine dont worry . If possible upload the xray image for me to look at .
Have a good day . Thanks alot.
