  • Some kids start to lose their teeth at 4 but most start around Kindergarten or 2st grade.

  • Usually around 6. My oldest insisted that once she turned 6 her teeth would fall out because all of her friends lost their first teeth around 6. Sure enough a few weeks after her 6th birthday she had a wiggly tooth. It fell out a few months later. She was in 1st grade.
    My son lost his first a month before he turned 6. He actually pulled it out himself because I noticed his adult tooth was growing in behind it. I only told him to wiggle it so it would get looser and fall out, lol. Boys.
    My middle daughter lost her first tooth last summer. She was only 5 1/2. She'll be 7 in November and has lost 6 teeth and has another loose one. Earlier this year had 4 gaps because of missing teeth.
