What order do teeth usually fall out?

My son just turned 5 so we are trying to prepare him for losing his first tooth. He has a very slightly loose front , bottom tooth already. The bad thing is that he's getting all four of his molars in at the same time!

He wasnt happy about learning that he will lose his teeth until the tooth fairy was mentioned...go figure!!

A child's first permanent molars emerge at about age 6, at the same time he or she begins to lose primary teeth.

Children lose their 20 primary teeth between the ages of 6 and 11 years. Sometimes a permanent tooth will begin to come in before a child loses the primary tooth. This is usually not a problem unless the primary tooth is not loose. In that case, a dentist will need to remove the primary tooth.

A child's front permanent teeth may be angled away from the center and look crooked. This is normal, and the teeth should straighten out naturally as the other permanent teeth come in.
After the primary teeth are replaced by permanent teeth, the child's last molars will come in (four second molars and four wisdom teeth). This takes place between the ages of 12 and 21.
Sometimes wisdom teeth do not come in properly and may need to be removed.

Normally, a person should end up with 32 adult teeth.

~~~~~~~~~~~

You usually lose your two center lower teeth first followed by the two centered upper teeth. After that it is usually the two teeth on the bottom on either side of the centers then the same for the top. After that would be the canine on the bottom and then the top.

This can change depending on the child but is usually the case.

My 5 y.o. is getting what the dentist called "5 year molars" on the bottom and it isn't bothering him a bit. when they are fully out he said that he will put dental sealants on them. that is something else that goes along with those permanent teeth.

My son got his "6-year" molars at five too. And he lost both his bottom front teeth first. I don't really think there is a certain formula though, there are norms. My neighbor's dd lost her eye teeth first and now her front's are loose. Early teethers often lose their teeth early. My three year old is already starting the separation and spreading that preceeds loose teeth. The dentist told me that she will probably loose her teeth earlier that her brother. By four or four and a half. (She was barely four months when she got her first tooth.) So, some tylenol or motrin before bed might help alleviate some of the discomfort. Congratulations to your son on a milestone!

We have six year old twins living next door and they just recently lost their first teeth. Now every night, our four year old is telling us that his teeth are loose--driving me crazy. Oh they want to grow up so fast.
