Other baby tooth eruption facts:

  • A general rule of thumb is that for every 6 months of life, approximately 4 teeth will erupt.
  • Girls generally precede boys in tooth eruption.
  • Lower teeth usually erupt before upper teeth.
  • Teeth in both jaws usually erupt in pairs—one on the right and one on the left.
  • Primary teeth are smaller in size and whiter in color than permanent teeth that will follow.
  • Shortly after age 4, the jaw and facial bones of the child begin to grow, creating spaces between the primary teeth. This is a perfectly natural growth process that provides the necessary space for the larger permanent teeth to emerge.
  • By the time a child is 2 or 3 years of age, all primary teeth should have erupted.
  • It’s important to note that eruption times can vary from child to child.
