Do not worry. No medicines needed. This is natural process. Note to visit an Orthodontist to check if new teeth are coming properly in alignment. This would PREVENT future malocclusion problems.

Hi..no need to worry as it's a common to all kids known as deciduous teeth shedding. It is a process to give way for permanent teeth. Just brush his teeth twice daily and whenever any tooth falls on its own just make him rinse his mouth with warm water with a pinch of salt for better healing of gums. Regards

Baby teeth falling is a natural phenomenon..It is happening at the right age for your daughter.Baby teeth fall to give way for the permanent tooth to erupt .When the tooth falls there may be slight bleeding which will stop on its own.If your child has pain you can give her paracetamol syrup to receive the pain.
