The appearance of the first baby tooth is a reason for joy and curiosity for any parent. Not only grandparents are notified urgently, but also friends, co-workers, neighbors and everyone around us. The same happens when baby teeth are replaced with permanent ones, but before this happens parents wonder what is the order of fall and change and how quickly they occur.
AT WHAT AGE DO THE FIRST TEETH FALL?
Most children have a total number of 20 baby teeth, this number being exceeded in very rare cases. Being temporary, baby teeth fall out and are replaced with permanent ones. Usually, the first baby tooth falls out at the age of six, and the last at the age of 12.
ORDER OF CHANGE OF TEETH
All 20 teeth will gradually fall out at the age of 6 to 12 years. These baby teeth will be replaced in order with the permanent teeth that the baby will have for life.
1. CENTRAL INCISIVES
As seen in the image above, the first teeth changed are the central incisors, teeth that usually fall out at the age of 6 years.
2. SIDE INCISIVES
The next baby teeth that the baby will change are the lateral incisors. Thus, permanent incisors will appear around the age of 7 years.
3. CANINS AND MILK MASSES
The last teeth to fall out are canines and milkweeds, first and second molars, which are all lost between 10 and 12 years.
