Tooth Eruption

Kid and Child focused Dentist In Grand Blanc MI

The first baby teeth that come into the mouth are the two bottom front teeth. You will notice this when your baby is about six to eight months old. Next to follow will be the four upper front teeth and the remainder of your baby’s teeth will appear periodically. They will usually appear in pairs along the sides of the jaw until the child is about 2-1/2 years old.

At three years old, your child should have all 20 teeth. Between the ages of five and six, the first permanent teeth will begin to erupt. Some of the permanent teeth replace baby teeth and some don’t. Don’t worry if some teeth are a few months early or late as all children are different.

Baby teeth are important as they not only hold space for permanent teeth, but they are important to chewing, biting, speech, and appearance.

For this reason it is important to maintain a healthy diet and daily hygiene.

Patient Testimonial By Meghann S

I take all my children here. After a bad experience at another pediatric office, my kids hated the dentist. Since we switched to GBPD my kids don’t scream or cry when it’s time to go to the dentist!
