I think so! I got my 12-year old molars at like age 15, so I am assuming it can be different for everyone. Have you seen a dentist? As long as you are being checked up on, you should be fine!

You mean half of your baby teeth still haven't fallen out?

I lost most of my teeth before the age of 12, I think. I would ask your family if they had most of their baby teeth before the age of 15 and see what they say.

I agree with what Annie had said. As others in your family and see when they lost their teeth. I don't think there's anything too wrong with it. I would assume people lose them whenever. But if you do have any concerns then go and see your dentist.

Take care

The only reason I think it might not be normal is because I personally had to have 8 baby teeth pulled out because the roots weren't dissolving. Your dentist should be able to tell you if it's normal or not.

Hey there.

I'd lost all of mine before I was 10! It all depends on you, some people keep them longer, others don't. I know someone who got three sets of teeth, apparently, I'm not sure how true that is! Honestly, if you're seeing your dentist and he hasn't commented on it, there's nothing to worry about.

Keep smiling. (:

Re: Normal? - October 26th 2010, 05:26 AM

I'll be honest i'm not quite sure if you can generalize a 'normal' time for all your baby teeth to fall out. Your dentist would kno more about your teeth then any of us on here.

The main things i would want to ask though are do you have a healthy diet, are you getting enought calcium in your diet or atleast taking multivitamins daily, do you practice daily dental hygeine and when did your parents lose their last baby tooth. I'm not so much asking you to answer that but more saying if you're doing most of that stuff, then i think you should be ok.

I would still talk to my dentist if you're concerned about it. If you're not eating a healthy diet and getting enough calcium i would definately bring that up to your dentist as well and have them take a few xrays. But in all honesty i know you're probably concerned about it because all your friends have lost theirs, but like many have said on here every1 is different and they will all fall out in due time. =)


gotta love me <3

Well...you can lose your baby teeth until you turn 18, so maybe they'll fall out soon. Did this help at all?

That seems unusual, but I think everybody loses their baby teeth at their own rate. Unless you have permanent teeth coming in without the baby teeth falling out, it's probably not a big deal. But I would still recommend finding a way to see a dentist because I know I'm certainly not qualified to tell you whether that is normal or whether it is a sign of some dental issues.


So I will find my fears and face them
I will cower like a dog
I will kick and scream
I will kneel and plead
I'll fight like hell to hide that I'm givin' up

Your parents refusing to take you to the dentist is neglect.

There's no one else that can take you?
