When Will My Child Start Losing Baby Teeth?

You can expect that your child will start to lose their baby teeth once they reach the age of six. Again, each child is different, so it may be a bit later before this begins to happen. Typically, the first two teeth to fall out are those in the front, on the bottom row. These are then followed by the two front teeth in the upper row. As permanent teeth begin to push upward, their baby teeth will continue to fall out until they’re all replaced with adult ones.

Dental Services for School-Aged Children
