When Will My Child Start Losing Baby Teeth?

Children typically begin losing their baby teeth around six years old. Usually, the first ones to fall out are the two front teeth, and then, over the next six years, the rest of them will follow. Throughout this time, routine dental checkups are crucial to make sure that their adult teeth properly develop and emerge without becoming impacted. By around 13 years old, most of your child’s permanent teeth will be fully erupted.
