Talking average age for losing first tooth?

Hi everyone, this is not really a concern but more of a curiosity. My ds just turned 5 a few weeks ago and I was just wondering when I might expect him to start losing his baby teeth. How old were your kids? He got teeth early(had all including molars by 12 months) so I thought maybe he would lose them early. Just wanted to get an average age.
thanks

Re: average age for losing first tooth?

My son didn't lose his first until well after all of the others kids in his class. While most of the kids lost theirs in kindergarden he lost his shortly after he started grade 1 at the age of six.

I noticed my daughter's first loose tooth shortly before her fifth birthday and the two bottom ones came out shortly after she turned five. The two top ones are loose and have been for months, but she doesn't wiggle them much.

Cute story... when the fist tooth became really loose she wouldn't let us pull it (it was dangling from her gums) and as we ate supper we realized it had fallen out in her mouth but we were lucky to get it before she swallowed it! We weren't so lucky with the second one. As she munched on some ice in a restaurant one day a look of shock took over her face and I though she was choking. I noticed her mouth and asked if her tooth had fallen out and she said no. It had and she hadn't realized and as far as we know it went down the hatch with the ice. We had to write a note to the toothfairy explaining the circumstances. The toothfairy understood the dilema and left her a little something anyways.

I have heard that girls will lose theirs before boys but I'm not sure how true that is.

Re: average age for losing first tooth?

Hi, my daughter is 6 this december and still has all her teeth, altough a few weeks ago was complaining of sore teeth so I took her to the dentist and he said they were just moving as the big ones were growing underneath. He also said that the longer they keep their bby teeth the better
