Question
My daughter is 11 and I was wondering if it was normal for her to have a molar that is very loose and ready to fall out?   Thank you!

Answer
it should be kind of in the middle...not the very back tooth. the very back one should be the permanent first molar. the teeth further forward are baby molars. and 11 is when they loosen up and are lost. i do no want to tell you anything for sure here because i am not seeing her in person...you should let your dentist take a quick look to make sure all is normal here. but i hope the above information helps. good luck
