What happens if milk teeth do not fall out

Mar 7, 2014

During childhood I always had to go to a dentist to pull out my milk teeth as they never fell off on their on. At the age of 15, there were still few teeth remaining to fall off. The x-ray showed that there was no new teeth waiting in the queue to sprout; but the dentist said I should get artificial teeth fixed and pulled out the remaining 4 milk teeth. Since the gap in my mouth has not been visible, I opted not to fix the artificial ones. Right now I am 25 and wondering if the dentist's decision to pull out those teeth was right. I would like to hear from you. Also, do you think it is ok to continue living with those gaps in my mouth?

Hope you guys can help!
