You may be wondering if your child’s teeth are developing properly. While every child’s smile is different, there are a few general rules you can expect your child to follow.

Your little one will probably start getting their baby teeth between the age of six and ten months. Their last tooth should erupt before they’re three years old, but will likely come before they turn two. They will likely lose their primary pearly whites in the order in which they came, starting at around the age of six.

You’ll want to bring your child into our pediatric dental clinic around the time they turn one or when their first tooth peeks above the gumline. If your child is over the age of one and doesn’t have any teeth yet, you’ll want to address that with Dr. Casey W. Johnson, Matthew J. Burt, & Paul H. Allen as soon as possible. If your kid is eight and hasn’t yet lost a tooth by age eight, we also recommend contacting us.

Whatever your child’s development process, our expert staff at All Kids Dental Pediatrics & Orthodontics in Glenwood Springs, Colorado can give you the specialized knowledge and care you and your child need. If you would like to learn more about when your kid’s teeth should come in, or if you have any more questions about protecting your child’s smile, we invite you to give us a call at 970-928-9500. We look foward to speaking with you.
