My eldest (6 and 4 months) has just lost one of his top centre teeth, is this a normal age? What age were your kids and what did they lose first? Do they lose every tooth (sorry for the stupid question but I don't remember losing my back teeth!!) how long does this take? When do the new ones come through?
It's felt like a while since I've had a proper parenting question ha!!
My eldest will be 6 at the weekend. She lost her bottom two teeth at 5 & 2 months, and lost her top 2 front teeth about a month ago. Quite a few in her class lost theirs a good bit before her, yet some haven't lost any. Sounds perfectly normal to me, and although bottom teeth tend to fall out first, it's not unheard of for them to be lost in a different order (just as some babies get their teeth in different orders)
All of my daughters adult teeth started to grow in before she lost her baby ones, which were pushed out. One of her top front teeth is pretty much fully throug but one is only out of the gum a little. Some kids don't get their adult teeth through for a while after losing baby teeth, though!
And I think they lose their first 2 molars, but not the ones that have just come through (my daughter got her 3rd molars in a few months ago, I'm pretty sure they are permanent but the ones she got as a baby/toddler will fall out)
My daughter lost her first bottom tooth at 5 years, 9 months and the second two months later. She hasn't lost any top teeth yet. Some kids in her kindergarten have lost top teeth already and some kids haven't lost any. There is a year or span in which most children lose teeth.
They generally lose them in the same order they come in. Bottom center, then top center, top outer, bottom outer, first molars, canines, last second set of molars. They don't lose the molars they get when older, 6 year, 12 year and Wisdom teeth. My DD hasn't gotten the permanent molars yet.
My boy lost his 2 middle bottom teeth close to his 6th birthday, he lost the middle top ones after a year close to his 7th birthday. He has a wobbly side top one. For him it takes forever to grow the new teeth, but he was a late teether & got his 1st tooth a week after his 1st birthday
Joshua was quite 'old' when he lost his first tooth. He was nearly 8! He has now lost three (2 bottom and 1 top, another is wobbly). He didn't get any teeth until he was over a year old though so I'm guessing he is just a year behind.
My DS is 5.5, several kids in his class have lost a tooth/teeth, at least 3 lost their first tooth while they were in Reception which seemed super early to me! I'm not sure what the average is though.
There's a little girl at nursery with DD, she lost 2 teeth before she was 4!
My 5 year old (will be 6 in Feb). Lost both her front bottom teeth within 2 weeks of each other a month ago and the adult teeth are both half way through already. They seemed to be wobbly for a few weeks. She has all 4 3rd molars? I think there called.
