Children and Oral Care
You may be wondering what to expect when your baby starts teething. For newborns, some teeth may appear as early as six months after birth. During the first three years of life all 20 baby teeth will erupt. These primary teeth are important in normal development and hold space for the permanent teeth.
The four front teeth usually erupt first at 6 to 14 months. Around 14 to 19 months the child’s canines and first molars will erupt. Then finally between age 2 and 3 years the second molars will erupt. As the child grows, their jaw will grow to make room for the future permanent teeth, which will erupt around age 6.
