Q.

Loosing permanent teeth

My son is ten years old and was born premature on 30 weeks.He does not eat meat fish or chicken.He drinks plus minus 36 litres of milk per month and eat mostly pastaHe will on the odd occasion have sausage or burger patties and that''s it. I noriced that he now loses some permant teeth if I may call it that at the back in his mouth. A GP told me that it is his milk teeth? Please confirm if I must have grest concern about this because everybody (friends) gives me different advice.

the teeth that a child loses at age 10 are the baby molars.
It is VERY unlikely that the teeth he has lost arepermanent teeth.
