Excitement here tonight as my 5 year old has a loose tooth original.gif

Just wondering what order your children lost theirs?
This is one of the middle top teeth.

I am a wee bit excited too, wasn't expecting this till school next year (July b'day) but something I really have little idea about.

Hmmm.....strange! My DD lost her two bottom ones first, and every other child I know of lost their bottom ones first too! Five does seem quite young to lose the top teeth. But I suppose every child is unique!  rolleyes.gif

Are you sure it wasn't knocked and that's why it's wobbly? Just seems quite young for the top teeth, and in the wrong order (not bottom first)  unsure.gif

But maybe other EB members can help?

My son lost his first tooth today, it was his left bottom middle one.

I think my kids have all lost their bottom middle 2 and then their top middle 2.

DD 5.5 has lost both of her bottom teeth.  The teeth either side of those are wobbly now too.  Top front are staying in strong.

My 8 year old lost her first tooth at 4 and has just today lost her first pre-molar. She has lost the 4 front top and 4 front bottom so far, skipped the canines and moved onto molars LOL

I did ring the dentist and double check losing a pre-molar at 8 1/2 was ok but they said since she teethed early (had two teeth at 9 weeks old) that she was more likely to lose them early

Hmmm, I thought it should be the bottom teeth first also. Off to the dentist I think (if we can get in!)

Funwith3 I don't believe it has been bumped as I am home with her everyday but I guess you never know. Now I am starting to worry  unsure.gif

My girl was 5.5yrs when she lost her bottom 2 teeth, followed shortly by two more bottom teeth (either side of the ones just fallen out) and then lost her top 2 teeth before she turned 6!

She got her bottom 2 teeth just after the 2nd lot of bottoms fell out, but her top teeth are still not there (been around 4 months I reckon!)

Hmm, I had read somewhere that the teeth usually fall out in the order they come in?

2 of my girls lost their bottom front teeth first, but DD2 lost her front top teeth first. I remember at Christmas she had both top front teeth missing "All I want for Christmas ..."

My DD lost her 1st tooth a week after her 5th birthday. It was a bottom one and then lost the other bottom front one a week later.

Yep bottom teeth is what I have heard too. Bottom two in front, then top two, then bottom two next to the front ones etc.

Didn't happen that way with DD#3 though but she face planted and knocked out one top one and the other was really loose and she lost that one soon afterwards. Was a bit of a worry and we had to check her teeth were far enough down her gums to save the space and she was toothless for a very long time.

My child's bottom two were lost a day apart, which I found interesting as that's how they arrived too, both bottom middle appeared within a day of each other.

They appeared at 3 months of age, and then fell out when she was a few months from turning 5.

I read that too.

ds lost his bottom two within a day of each other at 5 and half.

DD1 seemed to lose her first 8 teeth in pairs and in relative quick succession from the age of 5 and a half. First two middle bottom, middle top pair, either side of middle bottom, then either side of middle top.

The new teeth all grew in much quicker than anticipated and we were not toothless for long! I thought she'd be gappy for ages but no.

She has not lost a tooth in over a year but has her first wobbly in ages. Top canine I *think* I haven't taken too much notice  ph34r.gif ohmy.gif

DS is losing all his in the order they came in.
Being a first child I wrote it down.  blush.gif

DS1 got two adult bottom teeth while his baby teeth were still there. So he had two rows of teeth at the bottom front. One baby tooth has now fallen out and the other is very loose. A dentist friend assured me that the adult teeth will move forward when the baby teeth have fallen out.

My daughter (now 7) lost her first tooth a few months before her 5th birthday. She went off to FYOS (5.5) with 8 teeth missing!

First two lost were on the bottom (inner) and then top.

My son (just turned 5) hasn't lost any teeth and doesn't appear to have any wigglers.

This is one stage of parenting that I absolutely loathe -- the losing teeth stage - as I am totally squeamish around wiggling teeth!

Ok now i am worrying because it is her top 2 tooth that are wobbly and after googling it seems that the bottom 2 usually go first (I over-think things!!).

Now just waiting for the dentist to open so I can give them a call.

Has anyone's child lost their top teeth first?

#19 Julie3Girls

Posted 20 December 2012 - 08:24 AM

I'm surprised anyone worries about this? I honestly didn't give it a second thought when DD2 lost her top teeth first. It didn't occur to me that kids loose their teeth in the exact same order .. maybe because they got their teeth in different order?

#20 CharliMarley

Posted 20 December 2012 - 08:58 AM

They usually lose them in the order they get them and if you look closely, you should see the second teeth pushing up below the teeth that are falling out, but I would check with the dentist, because it is not known that kids get top teeth first, or lose them before the bottom teeth.

Me too!! I can't stand it. DD#3 takes great delight in showing me and watching me freak out. While DD#2 is squeamish about it herself and wont touch any wiggly teeth. She had a baby tooth that was pushed to the front when an adult tooth came through and she wouldn't touch it. Dentist kept saying it will come out telling her to wiggle it but she wouldn't. Was so awful seriously took almost 2 years to fall out!

Its no drama as long as the adult ones are coming. Which they should be as that is the usual reason for wiggly teeth.

Even DD#3 who lost her top two unnaturally it was no problem once the dentist confirmed her adult teeth were far enough down in her gums so that the teeth beside wouldn't move over. Luckily they were far enough down but still didn't come through for just over a year!

DD has lost 3 teeth, front bottom left, front bottom right & 2nd bottom left. 2nd bottom right is really wobbly. Top ones have some wobble, but nothing too major yet.

Please don't worry that the top tooth came first. All kids are different-I'm sure she probably didn't teethe in the right order (mine didn't!) it sounds like the tooth came out because it was ready.
