What is the normal Eruption Of your Child’s Teeth?

Children’s teeth, also called Primary teeth, begin forming before birth. As early as 4 months, the first Baby teeth to erupt through the gums are the lower central incisors, followed closely by the upper central incisors. Although all 20 Baby teeth usually appear by age 3, the pace and order of their eruption varies. Permanent teeth begin appearing around age 6, starting with the first molars and lower central incisors. This process continues until approximately age 21. Adults have 28 permanent teeth, or up to 32 including the third molars (or wisdom teeth).

Primary teeth are eventually replaced with permanent teeth, healthy baby teeth are fundamental to a child’s overall health and development.
