The age at which children start to lose their baby teeth varies, but it usually starts around the age of 5 or 6. The lower central incisors, or front teeth, are typically the first to be lost, followed by the upper central incisors. Children will continue to lose baby teeth and grow permanent teeth until they reach their late teens, at which point they will typically have a full set of adult teeth.
It’s important to note that every child’s dental development is unique and the timing of when they start losing teeth may vary. If you have concerns about your child’s dental development, it’s a good idea to speak with a pediatric dentist.
