Healthy Mouth, Healthy Kids

Baby and adult teeth



when does a child finish losing his or her baby teeth


Thanks for the great question. The range of when children get and lose their baby teeth is very wide. In many cases the sequence,(how the teeth come in), is more critical than the chronological age at which they do. Having said that, MOST kids when finish losing their baby teeth around 11-12 years old. But every child is different and the 14 year old with 3 baby teeth may just be on a different 'pace'.

Hope that helps.
