Home > Tooth Development in Children
primary teeth usually begin to break through the gums (erupt) at about 6 months
of age. This is called teething.
Your child's first permanent
molars emerge from the gum behind the primary teeth at
about age 6, at the same time he or she begins to lose front primary teeth.
Normally, a person will have 32 adult teeth.
