Deciduous Teeth

Your baby’s teeth have already formed within their gums before birth. Every child is different, however it is common for deciduous or milk teeth to first begin to appear from around 6 months old. This teething process will continue until the child is approximately 2 or 3 years and up to 20 teeth have erupted.

Between the ages of 6-13 these early teeth will fall out and be replace by up to 32 permanent adult teeth. An exception to this is the Wisdom teeth, which if your child has them, can erupt as late as when they are in their mid to late 20’s.

It is vital to establish a sensible oral hygiene routine within children from a young age. We recommend regular visits to the hygienist who can give you the best advice on caring for your child’s teeth.
