What is the average age at which children lose their teeth?
Losing their deciduous teeth is a very exciting moment for children. Children start to feel that they are “growing up”. The age at which children lose their teeth varies quite a bit. Some children start losing their teeth at the age of 4, while other children start losing their teeth when they are 7 years old. The average age at which children start to lose their teeth is 6.
Do children start losing all of their teeth simultaneously?
Fortunately, children do not lose all of their milk teeth at the same time, this happens in several phases. The upper and lower front teeth are in the process of being replaced when a child is 6 or 7 years old on average. The canines are being replaced when a child is about 10 or 11 years old.
Who start losing their teeth first boys or girls?
In general, girls start losing their teeth a bit earlier. There is no apparent reason for this.
What to do when your child starts losing teeth late?
There is actually not much wrong when your child starts to lose teeth at an older age. And there is not anything you can do about it either. As long as your child is not bothered by its teeth, there is nothing to worry about. From the moment the new teeth start to emerge, the milk teeth will fall out by themselves.
