My 3yr old has wobbly front tooth is it too early to lose her tooth?

Q. Hi Dr. Caplan, my daughter will be 3 in 2 weeks time and she already has a very wobbly front tooth. Is this something I should be worried about, surely she is too young to be losing her first teeth, and should I book a visit to the dentist for her. We do take care of her teeth and they are brushed twice a day so am quite concerned. Many thanks.

A. Please do not be concerned.  Provided she has not hit her mouth the relatively early loss of a tooth is unusual but that is all- the adult tooth underneath is pushing the tooth out. If you are concerned please visit your dentist
