  • Oh yes absolutely normal. I think I was around the same age when I lost my first tooth. My son is now 6 and a half and he's lost 5 teeth already, and three of his big teeth are completely in.

  • yeah its not totally outside the normal. Kids lose their teeth when their bodies say they will.

  • Perfectly normal.  My 3rd child lost her first tooth at 5 1/2.

    The strange thing was she started teething really late.  She didn't get her first tooth until after she turned 1 so I figured she'd start losing them late but she lost her first one a lot earlier than my other kids.  She's just a slow teether.  It takes forever for her teeth to come in.  She lost 2 up top in 2009 (when she was 7).  She's about to turn 8 and they just now started to break through.

  • It's normal. Have her go to (sponsored by the American Dental Association) to learn all about proper care of teeth and what's normal for teeth falling out.
