The following is a baby teeth order chart of a infants’s mouth and lists when each tooth should approximately be coming in and when it should be getting loose and lost. Below that is a second graphic showing when the permanent teeth should be coming in.
2 general rules of getting baby teeth
- Girls get teeth before boys
- If a child gets their baby teeth late or early expect the same with the permanent ones too
If you notice something isn’t coming in when it’s supposed to, wait 2-3 extra months. There are a lot of people who are congenitally missing teeth, like me, and some people’s teeth fail to erupt because of crowding issues. Either situation would need the help of either a dentist, pediatric dentist, or an orthodontist. BTW, we happen to have a general cosmetic dentist, pediatric dentist, and orthodontist all at the same location (how convenient!). So, if you are in the Wheaton, Glen Ellyn area and looking for a pediatric dentist, orthodontist, or dentist; give us a call! We often combine visits with the orthodontist and pediatric dentist to same mom’s travel time can see a child during the same visit to evaluate any dental or orthodontic issues your child is having.
