How old were you? -

I'm not sure if this goes here, but I reallly feel confused. How old were you when you finally lost all of your baby teeth? I'll be in High school next year and I still like have about 6 baby teeth left. Is that bad?

i think i was about 11 or 12, mainly bc i had to have surgery to remove some of my baby teeth....i dont think its a bad thing, everyone has different teeth...I mean your dentist would tell you if something was wrong
I think I had lost them all by the time I was 11. I don't exactly remember. I don't think it's a bad thing, but if you're concerned, talk to your parents about taking a trip to the dentist. It really is important to visit at least once a year, especially as a child/teen.

I think I finished losing mine in middle school. You should talk to your parents if you're scared they're not gonna come out, though. The dentist can ease your mind, and sometimes it's just good to have a dental checkup.
However, there was one I didn't know about, that sat around until I had a dentist's x-ray when I was 14. The dentist told me the tooth beneath it was fully formed and to wiggle the baby tooth until it came loose. Two weeks later I had all my adult teeth.
Dentistry for children and adolescents is usually funded or subsidised somehow, maybe you could get your parents to look in to what help they could get for necessary things such as dentist's visits?
I'm not sure when I would have lost all my baby teeth naturally because over half of them were removed during a surgery. I had pretty severe crowding with some baby teeth incorrectly oriented. If I were to get braces to correct the position of the teeth, there would not have been enough room for the teeth to move. There was also concern because the baby and incoming adult teeth were fairly close to one another, the baby teeth should've fallen out but only a few already came out and just 1-2 were loose. I would say that altogether, I lost my baby teeth when I was around 13.

I think all mine were gone when I was about 10ish? Can't remember properly.
Don't worry too much about the baby teeth though. My sister still had hers at 16, and the dentist said that it can be good for them to stay in a bit longer. Eventually he took hers out for her as she needed braces, but hopefully for you they'll fall out naturally soon.
I lost my first baby tooth a few weeks before I turned four and all the rest were gone by the time I was nine. My sister didn't lose all of hers until she was fourteen though and then she lost some of them a second time and grew a 3rd set lol. I think it is just different for some people and you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
