This is going to sound like a really stupid question but my DS 5.8yrs has just lost his first milk tooth and it got me wondering whether he would lose all of his milk teeth including molars.

I've tried to think back and I can remember losing all of my front teeth and canines but I can't remember my molars falling outconfused

He will lose them all eventually, but I think the molars are when they are a lot older.

I'm so old i can't remember losing any of mine.

they get their first set of permanent adult molars around the age of 6 which appear without having to lose baby teeth first i.e. they get 4 extra teeth over and above the 20 baby teeth. They will lose their 20 baby teeth and they will be replaced by adult teeth normally by the age of 12/13 I think although my niece still has loads of baby teeth and she is 12.
