Loose Teeth FAQ
How do I know if my child’s baby tooth has fallen out too soon?
When it comes to primary teeth, there is no hard and fast schedule for when they will naturally fall out. In general, primary teeth will fall out from ages 5-11. If your child is younger than that, or your child’s teeth are loose or fall out after a specific injury or occurrence of pain, get in touch with us to schedule an appointment.
My child has Special Needs and has trouble at the dentist. Can you still treat their loose tooth?
In most cases, we can perform basic dental x-rays, exams, and cleanings for children who have Special Needs. Our Charlottesville loose tooth dentists are experienced and enjoy working with kids who have Special Needs, including kids with Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, children on the Autism Spectrum, and children who deal with dental anxiety.
We’ll do all we can to help your child relax so they can receive the dental care they need. In some cases, we will recommend nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or other sedation dentistry options.
