Do Kittens Lose Teeth?

Today while I was searching for cat information I found a forum where people mentioned kittens can in fact loose their teeth.
My kittens are 2 month old and I want to know if this actually happens. If it does, when will it happen and should I do anything to prevent it?

Yes, they can lose their teeth and don't worry about it, is normal.
Cats as well as dogs loose their baby teeth in between 4-7 months and their adult teeth grow in their place.

Kittens will lose their “baby” teeth and replace them once just like humans. 5 months is about the right age too. You don't often notice it because a lot of times they will just swallow the tooth and it ends up in the litter box.

Kittens do shed their baby teeth at about 6 months, they have a primary set and permanent set just like us. I would think that the entire tooth does fall out.
We don't usual know they have lost any because they usually swallow them. Funny how mother nature takes care of her animals.

I still have my cat's tooth from when she was about 7 months old.
