I think it must vary. My oldest didn't lose her first tooth until she was almost 6. My youngest lost her first a few months after turning 5.

By age 12 I still hadn't lost all my baby teeth and had to get 12 pulled in one day. Every kid is different. Give him some time. :-)

Any thing doing with teeth is heriderity. So it depends upon you and your husband. It can even go back a generation. I still have 4 "baby teeth" as an adult and my daughter is missing 2 of her adult teeth at 12. My son had 2 baby teeth that where fused and his dad had that. My 5 yr old is just now getting a lose tooth.

Hi there, my daughter lost her first baby tooth at the age of 4 going on 5 however, she is now 12 and still has a few of her baby teeth, according to our dentist there is no hard rule of thumb regarding the loss of baby teeth just as long as you have annual check-ups with the dentist to ensure that the teeth stay health.

My son lost his first teeth at five years old- apparently, his dad lost teeth at an early age too. I would say that typically children begin losing teeth in first grade. I wouldn't worry though- but if you are worrying (cause moms do!) maybe ask your dentist during your son's next appt.

This was a topic of discussion at gymnastics last week--someone's niece was 3 and lost their first baby tooth but the same woman's 9 year old daughter had not lost any. The dentist said not to stress over it that anywhere between 3-10 was considered normal!
