  • My son will be 5 in June and said yesterday his upper tooth on the side is bothering him. Is he too young for loose teeth? I thought he was, but now wondering I'm wrong.

  • My son lost his first tooth a month before he turned 6, and his second shortly after.

  • My dd will be 7 in sept and hasn't lost one yet either. the dentist said it was normal and she'll probably lose some soon.

  • I would like to know too. My son is 7 and he does not even have a loose one. I guess he just has strong teeth. I always did.

  • I don't know if there is any truth to this-but my dentist said that losing teeth is part of lifelong development and those that lose teeth later also go through puberty later (maybe a good thing for a little girl right?) It seemed to hold true for my boys. My older one lost teeth early and his voice changed and all that good stuff earlier than many friends. My younger one lost teeth later- he is only 10 so we will see when he hits puberty.

  • Oh and at school we have a tooth chart in Kindergarten- about half of the kids have lost one the other half-not yet. It seems like second grade is when we have a lost tooth almost daily in class. Very unscientific I know-but that may give you some idea based on 10 years working with kids.
