Q.

5 YEAR OLD LOSING TEETH

My 5-year old daughter' s teeth are already falling and this has caused alarm in me cos i think she is still young. What scares me most is that they take long to grom back and in some spaces it looks like she' s not gonna grow any teeth. Where must i go for help. I am staying in Bloemfontein, any help is welcomed.

it is not uncommon for some 5 year old children to start losing their baby teeth.
if they fell out on their own it shouldn't take a long time for the permanent teeth to show in the mouth.
Visit your nearest dentist/dental clinic for a check up
