When do children's new teeth arrive?

Your child’s first primary teeth (baby teeth) will begin to erupt between the ages of 6 and 12 months and will continue to erupt until about age 3. During this time, your child’s gums may feel tender and sore. To help alleviate this discomfort, we recommend that you soothe the gums by rubbing a clean finger or a cool, wet cloth across them. You may also choose to make use of a teething ring. When your child has finished teething, you can expect a total of 20 primary teeth!

As your child’s permanent teeth begin to erupt, he or she will lose primary teeth at various times throughout childhood. Permanent teeth begin erupting at age 6 and can continue until age 21. Adults have 28 regular permanent teeth and four wisdom teeth.
