Lost baby molar tooth at the age of 18, will a mature tooth grow

I am currently 18 years-old, and my baby molar tooth fell out last night. At this age, will a mature tooth grow back, and how long will it take? At the moment, I have my retainers on to prevent my teeth from moving into the blank space, should I leave it on, or will it effect the growth of my mature molar tooth? It is so uncomfortable and sensitive where the tooth is now gone, I hope that I may get some advice or answers, thank you.
