As a parent, you may be wondering how many teeth toddlers have and how to care for them. Most children begin developing teeth at six months of age and develop a total of 20 teeth by age three. By age six, a child’s primary teeth begin to fall out to make room for adult teeth.
No matter the age of your child, it is important to help them develop healthy eating and dental care habits.
Don’t fret if your 10-month-old only has a handful of teeth. Here is a timeline of what to expect with your toddler’s teeth and gums.
Six to 15 months: Your child’s first teeth will appear, usually the molars
15 to 18 months: Your toddler will grow their sharp, pointed canines on the top and bottom
18 to 24 months: More molars will appear in the bottom of their gums
25 to 33 months: Second molars will grow from the top of their gums
36 months: Your child will have all of their 20 baby teeth
Teething occurs around six months of age, when your child’s first tooth erupts. Some babies are fussier than usual when they are teething. This may be because of soreness and swelling in the gums before a tooth comes through.
These symptoms usually begin about three to five days before the tooth shows, and they disappear as soon as the tooth breaks the skin.
These are the signs to look for in a teething child:
If you feel your child is showing severe symptoms of teething, please consult your family doctor or contact an emergency care physician immediately.
Starting oral health care early helps prevent cavities, fight tooth decay, and form healthy life-long habits to protect your toddler’s teeth and gums. It is recommended that parents begin brushing their baby’s teeth as soon as the first tooth emerges.
