Appearance and Order of Baby Teeth

Your baby’s teeth begin developing while he/she is still in the womb. Your baby is born with a full set of primary teeth, also known as baby teeth, however, these teeth are not yet visible.

The first teeth usually appear between five and seven months of age. The two lower central incisors are usually the first to appear, the top four front teeth follow.

My first baby was born with one central incisor tooth that is known as natal teeth. This is quite rare and happens in about 1 in 2,000 births. On the other hand, my fourth child's first tooth appeared when he was 9 months old. Once the teeth start to come through, they appear at a rate of around one per month. So by his first birthday, your baby may have six teeth.

The following table shows when primary teeth erupt and shed. The order of appearance is an average and can vary from child to child.

Upper Primary Teeth Development Table
Upper Teeth When tooth erupt When tooth falls out
Central incisor 8 to 12 months 6 to 7 years
Lateral incisor 9 to 13 months 7 to 8 years
Canine (cuspid) 16 to 22 months 10 to 12 years
First molar 13 to 19 months 9 to 11 years
Second molar 25 to 33 months 10 to 12 years
