  • One of my twins started losing teeth at 6, the other didn't start until they were 8.

  • From Mayo children begin to lose their baby teeth by age 6 or 7, although sometimes baby teeth fall out up to a year or two earlier or later. Girls generally lose baby teeth earlier than do boys.

  • Hmm, tough question. I would call the dentist on that one. I know, your dying to be the tooth fairy, right??? LOL

  • she doesn't say anything after the dental asst. cleans them the dentist comes along, takes a look and says "no cavities, great job on the brushing" and walks away doesn't ask me if I have any questions

  • My dd just turned 7 and she has not lost any teeth yet, although she does have one that is getting loose. I was older when I started to lose my teeth as well.
