four of the molers are still baby teeth.

I'm 18 years old, and all four of the molers that are right before the set that came in when I was 12 never came out; they're still baby teeth. I haven't seen a dentist since I was 9, so I wouldn't know what one thinks (yes I know I really need to see one). What could be the cause of this?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Delayed developmental milestones of teeth need to be looked at. These could just be impacted molars and premolars. COnsult a dentist and let them decide what to do.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
