My Daughter is 5 and a half years old and all of a sudden she has 5 loose teeth. Two on the top middle and three on the bottom. Is this normal and what kind of steps do we need to take to help her with the transition of loosing teeth?
Are there germ concerns we need to know about and can she brush her teeth like normal right after they fall out? Also, she has her bi-yearly dental appointment next week. Should I keep it or reschedule? ...Jodie in NC
Jodie, your daughter is just a little ahead of the game. Not to worry. When baby/primary teeth are ready to come out, they will. Just keep brushing / flossing and everything will be fine. Also, keep her recall appointment and maybe the hygienist or dentist will help her with the loose ones.
