I would wait until the dental appointment and make sure to bring it up. Some kids take longer for their permanent teeth to come in after the baby teeth fall out.
Baby teeth fall out for 2 main reasons, Re-absorption of the bone making them loose enough that the permanent teeth push out the baby teeth, or weakening in the gomphosis joint causing the teeth to fall out.
