My daughter, now 17, lost her first 2 teeth in preschool! I was shocked. By age 10 she had lost each tooth she was supposed to plus had her 12 yr molars.

She has a perfect set of teeth, beautiful, no ortho needed at all. We've been fortunate but she also has good genes.

My daughter lost her first one at 6 years 3 months. My son is almost six and his one tooth is barely loose. I've heard it is similar to when you lost your tooth and when they got their first one. I was close to 7 when I lost my first tooth, and my kids and I were all late in getting our teeth to begin with, so I expected them to be late loosing them. Most of the kids that we know that were early loosers also got their teeth really early. their is a wide range of normal.

answers from Philadelphia on

I'm 46. When I was a kid you'd see school pictures with missing front teeth in 2nd grade and 3rd grade pictures were with kids with their new big front teeth. These days I hear kids losing teeth in kindergarten! My two older boys were 2nd grade. They're now 25 and nearly 17. My 7 year old triplets started losing teeth in kindergarten. There were some kids in their preschool class, a few, that were losing their first teeth. I'm not sure why it's earlier now.

At 5 my DS lost his 1st tooth. He has lost his 2nd bottom tooth (5.5yo) and now has a front tooth that is slightly loose (now 6). It does vary.

I am so there. My daughter is a September baby so very close to the oldest in her class. She's past 6 1/2 and... Nothing! No teeth have been lost. She did get her teeth very early though. Around 4 months.



answers from Boston on

6 1/2 for first tooth. She turned 7 last month and has lost a total of 4 teeth.


answers from Kansas City on

61/2 and she's only lost two of her teeth. She will be 7 on Thursday and no sign of the others coming out anytime soon.

However, our cousin who is 6 weeks younger than her has lost 5 and the other cousin that is a year younger has lost three.

You just never know...

ETA: She had all but a few teeth before she was one...many more than the cousins (four girls all born within 6 weeks of each other). And they have all lost more than she has. I'm not worried about it. But she is!
