My daughter was just turned 6 but my friends son was 8

DD was 4, DS was 5 1/2. I think I was 7 before I lost any of mine though.

My boy just lost his first one on his 5th birthday last week. I was a bit shock about it as really wasn't expecting it yet. Still thinking of taking him to the dentist just in case there's something weird about it!

A few days short of 7 for DD3. Can't remember for DDs 1 and 2.

My son lost his first tooth at very nearly 8. Think there's something in the anecdote that if they get them late, they lose them late.

8? Wow! I think 7 is quite late. Once they start to lose their baby teeth, their little faces really start to change, don't they?

9. Dentist said not to worry, she could feel the adult teeth in the gums

My son is 8 tomorrow and just lost his first one last week.

spellingtestmess Wed 15-Feb-17 22:47:29

Liz, makes me sad that I can't remember lots either!

spellingtestmess Wed 15-Feb-17 22:47:57

Wow! 8 and 9!!!

He also didn't get a tooth until 14 months. He was all gums for aaaages.

Four and three quarters 😔

Dd was just 6, ds was 7.5. Ds is 10 now and has had issues losing teeth and developing 'shark teeth' etc.

7 is within normal limits though. Dh's friend still has all his baby teeth aged 40!

Both of my DC's were 4

Dementedswan Wed 15-Feb-17 22:51:00

Last week and hes nearly 7. I thought it would never happen. Then it did. And now it feels weird like he's growing up confused

Both my dc started losing teeth a few weeks before they were 6.

I think that 6 is the average but it varies hugely.

spellingtestmess Wed 15-Feb-17 22:51:48

40?!!! I guess their adult teeth just never formed/pushed them out. Does it look weird?

jcalel80 Wed 15-Feb-17 22:52:27

My 7 yr old keeps asking me when he gets to lose a tooth as all his friends have had money from the tooth fairy

PickledPeppermint Wed 15-Feb-17 22:52:34

OP I will also have a 7 year old tomorrow still with all milk teeth!

4 and a half, only a few months ago but dd lost her two bottom teeth and her adult ones are through already. Those were her first two that came through and she was only 5 months.

Longdistance Wed 15-Feb-17 22:54:47

My dd is only losing them now she's 7. Though, her adult teeth have grown behind her baby teeth, hence waiting for them to fall out.

She only got her 1st tooth at 13mo confused
