Adult tooth growing in the wrong position
I'm 20 now but only recently had my last baby tooth pulled, and this was because my adult tooth was growing in behind it. So, I had that pulled to leave room for the adult tooth and was told to wait at least 3 months to see where that tooth goes. The problem is, the adult tooth is more than halfway out already (though not sufficiently out for us to do anything yet) and it's also halfway behind the 2nd front tooth, so it's not exactly directly behind the spot it's supposed to go into. In order for it to grow into the right spot, it would have to rotate itself a bit to squeeze in, which worries me because it seems like it'll probably just continue growing where it is. And the issue is that it seems like it's making the 2nd front tooth that it is halfway behind get a little crooked because it's probably taking up its space as well.
Does anyone know if there are cases like this where the tooth DOES grow into the spot on its own? The people at my dental clinic said that it could grow there on its own but I was told there's a chance it won't just because it's in a bit of an awkward spot. The bottom line was to just be patient but it's really hard to do that when I have a huge gap therefore making it impossible to smile without looking odd!
Does it sound like I'd need braces in a few months or is this just common?
