Unknown: You'll need to discuss the out of pocket expense with your daughter's dentist.

Normal: At age 6 it's perfectly normal for baby teeth to loose and fall out on their own. It's fine to get your Dentist’s assessment of the situation, however. As to insurance coverage you will have to discuss that with your insuring agency. This site is for general health care questions only. Also, as soon as permanent teeth begin to erupt important that she have 1st Orthodontic Examination.

Mouth guards: Almost every dentist can make you a custom mouth guard. You shouldn't buy a mouth guard that is not made for you specifically or it can cause problems. Just like one size fits all shoes aren't a good idea.

Why is my 2 year old daughters stool always a shade of green? I rarely give her juice or food coloring so it cannot be the dye...

Normal!: It is not uncommon in some children. If the stool is formed , child is growing i would not worry about it. It is often from green leafy vegetables, coloring agents in the food or simply due to rapid transit from small intestine to large intestine where it normally is tuned brown.
