When Do Babies Get All Their Teeth?
The average baby begins to show the first signs of teething between 6 and 10 months of age, but when do babies get all their teeth?
On average, all of a child's teeth have come in by 30 months of age. However, there is variability in the timing and sequence of tooth eruption based on a number of factors, including gender and ethnicity. Girls tend to develop their primary teeth before boys, and African American children often develop teeth earlier than Caucasian children do.
Babies usually get their teeth in this order and at the following ages:
- 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.
