Hi there,
Depends what type of liquid and frequency of liquid drink you will take.
If you drink a liquid which has lot of sugar and drink very frequently, it might have some bad effects on your teeth. I would suggest to limit your liquid intake to less sugary and 3-4 times a day and finish the drink quick. Don’t keep sipping on some sugary liquid or juice all day long. Also rinse your teeth with regular water after drinking any liquid.
Hope this helps.

Hi there,

On average, children start losing their front baby teeth at around 6 years of age. There is a range, however, some children lose their teeth earlier and some later. I would recommend coming in for an exam and X-rays, so doctors can see the positioning of her adult teeth underneath her baby teeth to get a better understanding of when she might lose the baby teeth or if there needs to be any intervention taken by the dentist.

Hope this answer helps.
