My son is 9yrs old (he will be 10 this september) and he's had 2 teeth fall out this year. He goes to the dentist regularly and his checkups are always good, so should i be worried?

Whew, that's a relief! I don't recall me losing teeth past his age. I feel much better now, thanks Sherri and Jocelyn! :)

My son is almost 13 and still losing teeth, not sure if the one he lost last month is his last one or not. They stop dropping out when they have no baby teeth left....

My last 4 baby teeth had to be pulled out when I was 12 because the adult teeth were coming.

Maybe just check with his dentist next time whether there are any baby teeth left :)

@ Jodi when i last took him to the dentist he had one pulled and i assumed that was his last baby tooth but I guess not. Thanks for the update :)
