Re: Teeth falling out really, really late?

thank you! I am not worried but it is nice to hear that she is not some freak of nature! She is beginning to get annoyed that she is the only one in her class that hasn't lost any teeth yet. And yes, she was a late teether.

Re: Teeth falling out really, really late?

My kids are on opposite ends of the spectrum. DD lost her first tooth before her 5th bday. She's already lost her second, has 5 more loose teeth and her 6yo molars are already coming through.

DS is 3y4.5m and STILL working on getting his 2yo molars. He will lose teeth late.

Our ped dentist said that 5-8 is the normal range for losing the first tooth. Most kids lose their first tooth around age 6. A few are early (like my DD) and a few are late (after age 8). I was average, DH was average. DD is early and DS will be late. There is no telling!

BTW, DD's mouth is SO tiny that her adult teeth are knocking out 2 baby teeth at a time, coming in behind her baby teeth, AND coming in crooked. We knew her mouth was crowded (her teeth have been touching since she got 4 across the bottom), but it's BAD now. She's going to end up with 2 rounds of orthodontia. They expect the first round to start at age 7. Be GLAD you don't have to deal with that!

I don't know if this has been mentioned, but late teethers will lose their baby teeth late. Generally speaking.

So, if she didn't get them early early, that could be why.

nothing to be concerned about.

Re: Teeth falling out really, really late?

All 3 of my DDs started losing their teeth at 5yo. My 6.5yo DD has lost 6 and two more are loose. Her twin brother, though, hasn't lost any...none are even loose...and he hasn't gotten his 6-year molars yet, either. Funny how different they all can be.

My DS was another that didn't start losing his teeth until he was 8, and he is still losing them at 13.

Has anyone else had a child that took forever to lose their baby teeth?
my DD lost her first tooth exactly one week before her 7th birthday her teeth are fine.

I didn't loose teeth until 9. So no worries...late blooming is all.

I remember how terrible I felt though that I hadn't lost any.

I find it odd that kids are loosing them at 5..

actually, we do, on ds who is now 8. He just had to have a bunch of teeth pulled to buy time and will have to wear a device to expand his top jaw to make enough room for his teeth. Then, after they are all finished growing in, he will need braces...

DD does have crowding as well, but so far it isn't as bad as ds's.

My daughter will turn 7 on April 6th as well and she is nowhere near losing any teeth. Our dentist isn't concerned either.
