Pakasuchus dentition

Dear all,

looking at the nature paper on Pakasuchus, I could not find an answer
to this very simple question (may have overlooked it), so I ask you experts:

If occlusion in Pakasuchus and relatives was mammal-like, were teeths
replaced in mammal-like fashion also or were they replaced more
frequently? If the latter, how was occlusion ensured with re-growing
teeth? Ot were there gaps at some places in the dentition?
