Q.

Loose tooth

My son' s teeth started falling out in August last year, in the week he turned six. He has lost two so far.

My problem is that he has a loose front tooth on the upper jaw. I has been loose since the beginning of april. It isn' t getting any looser and I' m getting worried, because his first teeth only took about a week and a half to come out. What can I do. The string tied to the door thing won' t work, because he is autistic and he will do this shen ever he wants money from the tooth fairy.

His teeth is very healthy because he loves to brush them.

leave it for another few months.Although the other teeth fell out faster it is not necessary for all teeth to fall out at the same rate. Don't worry- it will be fine
