Treatment Options If Your Child Loses Baby Teeth Too Early
Primary or baby teeth begin to emerge at around 8 months old and begin to fall out around age 6. The development schedule of baby teeth has some flexibility, but it's important that the teeth stick close to the time frame so that permanent teeth can grow in correctly. Losing baby teeth early can create serious development issues with permanent teeth. Baby teeth essentially serve as placeholders for permanent teeth. If a baby tooth falls out ahead of schedule, the emerging permanent tooth can grow in misaligned.
