Pedodontist in Norwalk

Norwalk California Pediatric Dentistry

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.

At Children’s Dental Group, many parents like to ask our Downey California pedodontist about when it is normal for their children’s teeth to begin to erupt. While this process can vary from child to child, we do have some basic guidelines regarding the timeline of tooth eruption that we would be happy to share with you. Most babies’ first teeth begin to erupt around the age of six months. Typically, it is the two front bottom teeth, or central incisors, that begin to peek through the gums first. Then, at around the age of eight months to twelve months, the row of four front upper teeth will begin to emerge. After those first few teeth, the rest should begin to come in gradually. Baby teeth usually erupt in pairs on each side of the jaw.

This process will continue until all twenty teeth have grown in. All of the teeth have usually erupted by the time that the child is around two and a half or three years old. The full set of baby teeth usually remains in the mouth until about the age of six, when they begin to fall out to make room for permanent teeth. If your child is three years old and all of the baby teeth have not erupted, you should visit our Downey California pedodontist so that we can evaluate your child’s tooth development and pinpoint any issues that may be occurring. If you ever have any other concerns about your child’s teeth eruption or another dental health issue, the staff at Children’s Dental Group is always here to provide you and your child with our professional opinion and our expert techniques.
