I gave my 4.5yo DD some chewy candy yesterday evening:...some fruity "leather"-type thing. While she was eating she said that her tooth hurt. We were in the car and she didn't say anything else and I forgot about it. This morning she got up and showed me a looth tooth (front, bottom). Ugh. Did I just cause her tooth to fall out prematurely? Or could it have already been "on the verge"? I thought that they don't start losing teeth until 6yo. A quick Google search turned up the fact that some kids can start losing teeth much earlier. If it happened on its own, I would not be worried, but with the candy and all...I will take her to the dentist today or tomorrow, if I can get an appointment...
