My DS is 5 and his bottom 2 front teeth have been loose since December..the adult teeth are almost all the way out but the baby teeth havent fell out yet and they are not loose enough to pull out.





Will they get looser with time or should I take him to the dentist and have them take them out?

My younger son was the same way.  Our dentist said not to worry, the permanent teeth would eventually push the baby teeth out and they did. But he takes a long time to lose teeth.

I was thinking that it would mess up the way the way the adult teeth grew since theres not enough space for them to grow out.

The dentist told me that once the baby teeth fall out, the permanent teeth will move forward and align properly and so far they have.  All four teeth that have come in so far came in behind his baby teeth.  I tease him and tell him he was like a shark :)
