Is 9 years old too old to lose a baby tooth?!

Question: Is 9 years old too old to lose a baby tooth!?
my son just turned 9 on the 11th of Aug!. he has a loose tooth,is this too old to be still losing his baby teeth!?Www@Answer-Health@Com

No at his age its expected that he will be losing baby teeth and gaining adult teeth!.
Roughly, up til the age of 6 is when a child only has baby teeth!.
From around age 6-12, children are in the process of losing baby teeth and gaining adult teeth!.
There is normally a sequence as to what baby teeth are lost first, different tooth types have different ages for becoming loose and falling out!.


I'll be 14 in less than 15 days ^ _ ^ and I still have 4 baby teeth!. I would have 10 baby teeth but my Dentist pulled out 6 and I have to go get the rest pulled too!. It just depends on the person!. It happened to my other bro too!. But I have two other bros that lost of their teeth before they turned 8!. (:Www@Answer-Health@Com

no, nine year ODs loose their baby teeth a lot!. my Friend didn't loose most of them until she was 13!. its better he is losing them now than later because it messes up your teeth more when you are older!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I don't think so!. It's better that he lost it now, rather than having it surgically removed later!. I would take him to the dentist just to be sure tho!. Www@Answer-Health@Com

No it's normal, your son won't have all his adult teeth(except wisdom) till he's 12!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
