Your child has twenty baby teeth that start forming before they are even born. Usually a baby’s front four teeth erupt first, generally at about 6-8 months of age. However, don’t be alarmed if the first tooth doesn’t come til later. Some children do not get their first tooth before their first year. The remaining teeth typically come in pairs up until the age of three. This is generally the case, but varies with each individual child.
Permanent teeth usually start to erupt between the ages of five to six, and incorporate along with the lower central incisors, the molars behind the back baby teeth. Your child will continue losing and replacing teeth until they are about fourteen.
