What is the order of tooth eruption in infants?
The following is the general order of eruption of primary teeth:
Central incisors: 6-12 months of age
Lateral incisors: 9-16 months of age
Canine teeth: 16-23 months of age
First molars: 13-19 months of age
Second molars: 22-24 months of age
Between 6 to 12 years of age, the roots of these 20 "baby" teeth
degenerate, allowing their replacement with 32 permanent "adult" teeth.
The third molars ("wisdom teeth") have no preceding "baby" version and generally
erupt in mid to late adolescence. Because of their tendency to promote crowding
and crooked orientation, they are often removed.
