Parents always want to know what they should expect when it comes to their children losing baby teeth. They often worry that something is wrong when their child's baby teeth don't fall out as expected. One detail to remember is that everyone develops at a different rate.
The first primary teeth are usually lost around six years of age. The ideal age for an Orthodontist to see a child is age 7, to evaluate the space and growth pattern of the individual child. Some children need interceptive treatment at this time, to help with the eruption of permanent teeth, or to avoid the possibility of extracting any permanent teeth at a later stage of development. Reasons for delayed eruption include crowded teeth, missing permanent teeth or extra teeth that can block the normal eruption of the permanent teeth. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact a staff member at Sondhi-Biggs Orthodontics.
