When are children supposed to start losing their baby teeth? My son is six and has yet to have any teeth even become loose. Is this something to be concerned about?
I : I would not be concerned because some of my patients do not lose teeth until seven and it will usually be the lower front central incisors. Some children will start exfoliating teeth at age four or five. I find that the children that are late with the eruption of their baby teeth seem to show the same pattern with the eruption of the permanent teeth. There is a year or two fluctuation with the eruption scheme of the permanent teeth. Also around this time the six year molars will start to erupt but again they may not start till seven. These teeth do not replace baby teeth and they erupt way in the back of the mouth. This is why it is important to have a dental exam and a panoramic x-ray at age six to check for proper growth and developement. This x-ray allows one to see all the teeth growing in the mouth. It is not uncommon to have baby teeth until the age of 12 and sometimes 13. There are genetic components involved meaning if the parents got there teeth in late usually we see the same trend with their children. Hope this helps. ...Read moreGet help now ›

No: When was your last dental checkup? You may have congenitally missing permanent teeth, you may have an extremely late eruption pattern, your permanent teeth may be impacted or erupting at an angle, there may be insufficient room for them to erupt, or combination of these factors. An exam and x-rays will reveal all this information. See your own general dentist or an orthodontist for an evaluation. ...Read moreGet help now ›
You don't: Mother nature does. As permanent teeth develop roots of baby teeth dissolve away and baby tooth falls out. Once baby tooth root has dissolved away enough, and the remaining crown starts to loosen, wiggling the baby tooth may help it fall out. If not sure, ask your very knowledgeable well-trained general dentist, pediatric dental specialist, or orthodontic specialist. ...Read moreGet help now ›
