Here at Children’s Dental Group, some of the most common questions that parents have for our pedodontist in Norwalk are about their child’s permanent teeth, and when they will start to come in. While the timeline for the eruption of adult, permanent teeth varies from child to child, there are some general patterns that most children’s teeth tend to follow.
To begin, usually the first permanent teeth to erupt are the first molars, and these can erupt around the age of six or seven. The next permanent teeth that usually erupt are the central incisors, which tend to erupt between the ages of six and eight years old. Next are the lateral incisors, which usually become visible around the ages of seven to nine years old. After the lateral incisors, the canines, or cuspids, usually are the next to erupt. The canines are then typically followed by first premolars, which are then followed by the second premolars, which are then followed by the second molars around the age of thirteen.
From that point, your child is not likely to have any more adult teeth erupt until their wisdom come in during their late teenaged years or early twenties. Our pedodontist in Norwalk will monitor how your child’s teeth are erupting during their regular check-ups, and can let you both know if there are any issues that need to be addressed as they come. We can also make recommendations for specific services that might save you money and time in the long run based on your child’s individual tooth eruption timeline. All of our services are always tailored to your child’s individual needs, providing the most effective treatments and successful results.
