Dear Practo User, A retained primary tooth will not cause any problem to you in your medical exam. You can visit a dentist nearby for thorough checkup of your teeth. All the best for your exam. Regards Dr Ankit Jain Arham Dental Care, Delhi

Spacing is not a problem, but there should not be any missing teeth. Total no. Of teeth should be 28 which excludes wisdom teeth.

Hi gud morning,in my opinion in defence dental checkup they only see if there is any missing tooth in mouth or not,there should not be any missing tooth in ur mouth,but if u have milk teeth still retains I don't think it is going to affect ur medical exam.but u have not mentioned that whether ur permanent teeth comes or not in place of ur milk teeth? Please go n get check from a dentist ,If u have ur all permanent teeth in mouth or not ? If u have all permanent teeth then u may extract this milk teeth but if extracting milk teeth causes some gap in adjacent teeth then don't go for extraction.thank you
