Are you supposed to lose your bottom molars?

This is a difficult question to answer without more information. If you are talking about your baby molars then yes, you lose them and they are replaced by the adult premolar teeth. You lose these between the ages of 9 and 12. At this time your adult first molars are usually already erupted and your adult second molars are just starting to erupt. See the tooth eruption chart below. If you are referring to your adult molars then, no, under normal circumstances you should not lose them. We routinely extract the wisdom teeth (adult 3rd molars) however loss of adult teeth usually indicates some kind of disease process, such as Periodontal Disease. Hope this helps! Dr. Nathan Saydyk
