Q.

Is this normal for a 4 year old?

My daughter is 4 years and 8 months old, recently I noticed that her 2 bottom teeth are loose. Her teeth is in perfect condition, is this normal at this age to get her adult teeth so soon? She started teething when she was 2 months old, and had her first tooth when she was 3 months old.

It is rather early but then your daughter has always been a very fast teether. Most babies only get their first teeth at 6 months. The question is whether her jaw growth is keeping pace with the likely arrival of her first permanent teeth soon. It may be an idea to just ask your dentist to see her about this although I am almost sure that nothing active will need to be done.
