Eruption Schedule

eruption table
A child’s primary teeth, or baby teeth, usually erupt during their first two years.  The average age for the first tooth to appear is seven months, but don’t worry if you child isn’t right on target.  If you have any concerns, schedule a visit and we’ll be happy to make sure your baby’s mouth is developing normally.

Most kids begin by losing their bottom front teeth around age six, and they progress in a fairly predictable pattern until they’ve lost all 20 baby teeth as teenagers.  The preceeding illustration shows when the permanent teeth usually grow in; the primary teeth usually exfoliate (fall out) a few months before.  Don’t worry if your child doesn’t follow this chart exactly, but we’d be happy to take a look if you have concerns.  We also evaluate your child as they grow to screen for possible orthodontic issues.
