In brief: No.

Many children lose their teeth at a later age.
This is frequently a family trait. Pulling the baby teeth does not make the 2nd teeth come in sooner.

In brief: No

See your pedodontist to find the reason.
Six is the average age for incisors to come in. X-rays will show presence or absence of permanent teeth.
