Whether it’s brushing those teeth after they finally arrive or waiting for them to come in, baby teeth sure cause a lot of trouble!

Do you know that babies tooth buds develop before they’re born? As these buds “cut” through the gums, teeth usually appear in the following order:

  • 6 to 12 months: the central incisors (the teeth right in the middle of the jaw on the top and bottom)
  • 9 to 12 months: the lateral incisors (the teeth next to the central incisors)
  • 16 to 22 months: canine (cuspids)
  • 13 to 19 months: the first molars
  • 25 to 33 months: the second molars

Most children have all of their primary teeth by age three.

The process of getting these teeth can be effortless or excruciating depending on your baby. Even with minor cases, most babies show some teething symptoms.

The tricky thing about teething is that symptoms can start 2 to 3 months before a tooth surfaces! This can be brutal for baby and family if there’s a lot of discomfort.
