My 13 year old just lost a middle molar on the lower rear right side. Could this be a 12 yr. old molar falling out? Is this normal? Cause for concern? At his last dental appnt. he did have to have some baby teeth extracted. Help ASAP Please. He is panicking & I don't know what to tell him. Thanks.

  • Dont worry, its normal if your child is losing your molar at this age. Ideally, the age for molar to come out of oral cavity is 10 to 11 years but varies from individual to individual. As such this is not a matter of concern but if you are worried then you can consult a pedodontist and get and Xray done....For  more info visit the link...http://www.identalhub.com/dental-tooth-development-and-eruption-933.aspx
