Teeth loss in children
Teeth fall out in children when changing teeth in the mixed dentition due to normal tooth loss of the milk teeth.
The first milk teeth that fail in the child are the incisors in the milk teeth.
Teeth fall out when changing teeth
The permanent teeth develop under the milk teeth and expel the milk teeth, because between the 5th and 13th year of life the milk teeth are replaced by the permanent teeth.
The teeth of the human dentition are already in place before birth, because the germs for all teeth are created in the first six to eight weeks of pregnancy. At birth, parts of the milk teeth and permanent teeth are formed. The permanent teeth complement the milk teeth, which are the placeholders for the permanent teeth and, up to this point, are responsible for crushing the food. Milk teeth must fall out to make room for the permanent teeth, which takes six or more years. Inflamed milk teeth can also cause damage to the permanent teeth, which means that milk teeth must also be optimally cared for. The constantly growing and shifting remaining teeth begin to dissolve the roots of the milk teeth from below, so that milk teeth begin to shake. The 20 deciduous teeth that grow up to about three years of age usually fall out in the order in which they came. In some children, the first milk teeth fail at the age of four, but in other children, the teeth do not fall out until the age of seven. When children get their teeth early, the teeth usually fall out early. Milk teeth fall out, even if the permanent tooth is not yet visible under the milk tooth, because it often takes days, weeks or months for the new tooth to appear. The concerns about the initially missing tooth are mostly unfounded in the event of a delayed breakthrough of up to six months.
