Every child loses their teeth at a different age. Typically this is around age 6 or 7. If she hasn't lost her baby teeth yet, it's a good idea to see your dentist to have them take a peek and give you some reasons why - it could be normal or it could be a sign of something such as missing adult teeth. Xrays may also be beneficial to see if there are adult teeth growing underneath.

Baby teeth are incredibly important especially for holding the space for the adult teeth underneath them so you should definitely do your best to keep them healthy. In addition, rotting teeth can lead to abscessed teeth which can lead to even more problems for your child, his baby teeth, and his developing adult teeth. The best way to figure out why his teeth are rotting is to see a dentist so they can assess things. Often diet is the main factor - this could include "non-sugary" things such as carbohydrates (ex. chips, crackers) which turn into sugar, or "healthy sugars" such as fruit juice or milk. It could also be insufficient fluoride, weaker teeth due to issues during development, etc. It's important to have someone look at his teeth to figure out what the problem is and then you can figure out how to solve it. Good luck!
