When will my baby’s teeth begin to erupt?


Most children cut their lower front teeth by the age of six to eight months. These are followed by the two upper front teeth. The rest of the teeth should appear within the next 18 to 24 months. At two to three years, all 20 of your child’s baby teeth should have erupted.

The first adult teeth usually start to erupt by around five or six. These include molars behind the baby teeth and the bottom front teeth. Most children will continue with this process until around the age of 14. Since all children are unique, the order of eruption may vary from child to child. Variations in the eruption order or the timeframe of eruption and tooth loss are common. If you have any concerns, feel free to talk to our office.
