My 4 year old has a loose front bottom tooth, although it shook me up a first I have come to learn that babies that cut teeth early lose their teeth sooner.
I about had a heart attack when she showed me her tooth was loose lol. If anyone has any insight on this it would be appreciated.

Some people give more for the first or the last. I haven't decided on that myself.
I know that previously a quarter was the traditional coin to get for a tooth. I personally feel that's a little cheap in this day and age. I would say either a loonie or a toonie (obviously that's Canadian :P, so if you live in the USA, I would say the largest coin you have). I personally think that going in to paper money is just too much, but coins, especially for that age, seem pretty good :)

It makes me giggle since she goes to town wiggling it. She knows about the toothfairy and is trying to get it out so she can get money.... Any ideas on whats a good amount of money to give her? This will be her first tooth loss, so should I give her more for the first one than the rest?

I lost most of my baby teeth by the time I turned 7. I think I only had about 3 or 4 left after my 7th birthday.

It's really not a big deal. :) Explain what's happening to your daughter, spin a nice story about the tooth fairy if you want and, if you decide to do the tooth fairy, work out a price for the teeth :P And definitely work on your sneaky switching skills :P
Good luck
