My 6 yr old brought me his molar in his palm this morning. Is it normal to lose molars so early?

  • no. the adult ones come in as the baby teeth came in. Bicuspids,incisors,then molars. Has he lost any of the front ones yet?

  • Baby teeth usually fall out in the order in which they erupted — generally front of mouth first and back last. So 6 yrs sounds quite early for a molar to come out.

  • I've always understood you don't lose molars at all. Once they're in, they're in.

  • They do lose the molars. They have 8 total. The 3rd molars come in last,usually in early teens
