Baby Teeth Order
Teething is a normal process in which the first teeth of an infant begin to "erupt" and come up through the gums. It is one of those inevitable growing pains that every baby goes through. The average baby usually begins teething between 6 to 10 months of age.
Baby teeth often appear in the following order:
- Lower center incisors: 5 to 7 months
- Upper center incisors: 6 to 8 months
- Upper lateral incisors: 9 to 11 months
- Lower central incisors: 10 to 12 months
- First molars: 12 to 16 months
- Canines: 16 to 20 months
- Second molars: 20 to 30 months.
