Did my 5-year-old lose his teeth too soon?
Q: My 5-year-old son lost his two front bottom teeth. I know this is too soon. Will this affect his permanent teeth?
A: I think your son is fine. The average child loses his two front bottom teeth at around 6 years of age, meaning that many will do so around 5 or 7. Your son is on the early side, but losing them at this age won't affect his permanent teeth.
