From all my experience with children I thought that kids usually started losing their teeth between kindergarten and grade one. Some cases kids had already lost a few teeth by the time they were 6-7. My son is already over 7 and has not lost one tooth and none are even getting loose. Is this unusual?

No I dont think So I know Kali was late into the 1st grade when she lost her first tooth. I was begining to wonder as well. I read somewhere that the longer it takes kids to get their teeth, the longer it takes for them to come out. Kali was 10.5 months old before she got her first teeth. Even now, at 10.5 years shes only lost 8 teeth yet. I also noticed when she gets a loose tooth it takes FOREVER to come out (near a month or more before it comes out)

I agree it's not unusual, but if it concerns you speak to your dentist about it at her next visit. They can see on the x-rays where the underlying teeth are as well and may be able to give you an estimated timeline on when you can expect them to fall out. My son was almost 7 before he lost his first tooth and in the 1st grade and once the one started boy oh boy a bunch more did too LoL. He was also older getting his first tooth at 8 months old so he was a little older to loose his first one.

I would probably mention it to your dentist just so they can make sure things are on track, but more than likely she's just a "late bloomer".

I think it's normal. Milo lost his first tooth in kindergarten and Owen lost his first tooth on the last day of kindergarten, but they both started teething early at 3-4 months old. I have a friend whose son just lost his first tooth and he will be in 2nd grade in the fall.

my son is in grade two so he is a little older then the children everyone else is mentioning. I think this thread has made me more nervous because no one seems to have a child in grade 2 or 3 before losing a tooth so I called the dentist. Hopefully they will put my mind at ease.

I don't think its real unsual- but calling the dentist will help ensure you.

Well I wouldn't go by grade since all children start school at different times. What is his AGE? After speaking to my dentist on it a year or so ago they have to be VERY late before they put them through pulling teeth, so I wouldn't worry too much.
