When Will My Child Start Losing Baby Teeth?

A child can be expected to start losing their teeth around age six, and they tend to fall out in the same order that they came in. It’s important to keep up with your child’s checkups during this process because the position of the baby teeth has a direct influence on how straight (or not) the permanent teeth will come in. Your child should have 28 permanent teeth around age 13, with their third molars (wisdom teeth) appearing between the ages of 17-25.

Dental Services for School-Aged Children

In addition to performing routine dental checkups and teeth cleanings that protect your child from cavities, we can also place dental sealants to shield their most vulnerable teeth (the molars) from plaque and bacteria. Dr. Mehta can also offer Phase 1 Orthodontic to correct misalignments in the baby teeth so they don’t disrupt the incoming adult teeth, and tooth-colored crowns and fillings can seamlessly repair any issues along the way (nobody’s perfect!). And for little athletes, we can give them a custom-made mouthguard that will allow you to breathe easy from the sidelines.
