I am 15 but still have some baby teeth, what should I do?

A. Hello Martin First step is to go to the dentist to have an assessment of your teeth . The baby teeth may fall out by themselves , although it is quite late for them to still be there . If you need straightening treatment , or the extra teeth removed , then the dentist will talk you through whats needed , so that you and your parents can choose what is best for you . Its possible to have teeth out with some form of sedative if you are very nervous of just having the gum numbed . A mixture of gas and air called Relative Analgesia can be a very helpful conscious sedation technique to ask about , although you have to search for a dentist who does it . Good luck in getting your teeth sorted out
