Default Hedgehog lost fangs

Hi! My boy is almost 5 now. He lost one of his fangs a few months ago and I took him to the vet but she found nothing wrong. We did not put him under for an in depth exam because it was risky and he got along just fine afterward. Just yesterday or today I noticed he lost his other fang. He is still eating fine and has lots of energy. He recently was at the vet for nose bubbles and finished. his medication. Is it relatively normal for a hog to lose teeth with age?

I believe some hogs do loose teeth as they get older yes.
Is he struggling with biscuit? I've seen some things about hogs losing their teeth due to struggling with biscuit.
