She’s right on schedule to lose those teeth anyway, so I doubt she did anything to them herself. When the permanent teeth are ready to pop through, the roots of the baby teeth resorb and begin to loosen. Its really a natural progression, and she’s at the average age for that to happen.

As long as she has enough space for all permanent teeth to erupt exactly where they belong, her alignment will be fine. That’s not to say she wouldn’t need some correction anyway either from some other mouth habit or hereditary factors.

If she was 4, I’d worry. At 6? Nope.

Sure. If you look around at her classmates, I’ll bet more than half of them have some permanent incisors already. It’s another milestone that takes many people by surprise. 🙂
