When Do My Child’s Teeth Erupt?
Primary teeth begin erupting as early as six months of age, but some children will be closer to a year old. There is a total of 20 primary teeth, with the last set of 4 molars erupting between 23-33 months of age.
Permanent teeth begin replacing the primary teeth around Kindergarten or 1st grade, beginning with the lower front teeth or the first set of permanent molars in the back of the mouth. Most permanent teeth finish erupting by 12-13 years of age, except for wisdom teeth. In total, there are 32 permanent teeth.
