Is it normal for a 4 year old to have loose teeth?

I have a 4-year-old son, will be 5 in September, he showed me that his bottom front tooth was loose. I tried not to show I was scared but is that normal to have a loose tooth at that age? No rot, or miss colored teeth and I watch how much sugar and such he eats

Has he ever fallen and hit his mouth?

Maybe call your child’s dentist and ask? I really don’t know :woman_shrugging:t2:

Can be normal. Did he get his teeth early? Typically if they come in early, they fall out early.

Yes it is normal in some children by the age of 4 years to have a loose tooth! :slight_smile: my daughter lost her first tooth this year she is 5

my oldest lost her first tooth at 4

If he got teeth early, it’s possible that they are loose. Usually it’s about 5 or 6 so it’s not too early

Can be normal yes ! My son was a very fresh 5 losing his first tooth.

It’s rather normal my son started to get loose teeth at 5 and his still going and getting his big boy teeth now

My oldest lost her first tooth when she was four.

5 or 6 is the common age, but some kids lose them at age 4. It’s okay.

My kid is 6 and has lost 3 teeth. Lost his first at 5. 4/5 is normal

One of my daughters lost her first at almost 5 and the other at 5. So I’d say pretty normal.

My sons 5 and lost 2 so far. Dentist said its normal

Yea my daughter had her adult front teeth in my the time she was 6

My son, who is now 13, started getting his teeth at 4 months old and he lost his first baby tooth at 4 years old. He lost it naturally and seemed to be fine.

Yes. 2 of my 3 kids lost bottom front teeth before turning 5.

Yes. Normal.
Even normal to not lose baby teeth and keep them forever.
