Teething Schedule

In general, infants begin teething between 6 and 10 months of age. The first teeth to keep an eye out for will be the two bottom front teeth known as the incisors; they all generally come in pairs.
The average baby follows the teething schedule shown in the following table.
Type of Teeth

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


16 to 20 months

Second molars

20 to 30 months

All of a child's teeth will have typically come in by 30 months of age. However, there is variability in timing and sequence of tooth eruption based on a number of factors, including gender and ethnicity.
