Age 1 – 3 years: First visit to the dentist

The temporary dentition, commonly known as baby teeth or temporary teeth, has a total of 20 teeth. At the age of 6-7 months, baby teeth start to erupt. The two lower central incisors appear first, followed by the upper counterparts. Sometimes small bluish cysts, a serous coryza, a reddening of the cheeks are observed. During this period your children's teeth will begin to erupt actively and by the age of 3 the child will have all teeth erupted.

The baby teeth are therefore fully formed by the age of 3 years and any delay in tooth eruption of more than one year beyond this age must be considered pathological. The rash may be accompanied by salivation, redness of the gums, which may eventually be swollen, shiny and painful.

If you have not yet scheduled a visit with the dentist, now is the best time to make an appointment. Remember, baby teeth matter! They will ensure the space for the appearance of permanent teeth and will contribute to the development of language.

Age 5 – 6 years: First lost tooth

The next stage is the loss of baby teeth and the eruption of permanent teeth. Dentists classify this stage as mixed dentition. This happens around the age of 5 or 6. On average, it takes about 6 years for a child to lose baby teeth and have all permanent teeth erupt (except wisdom teeth).

It is absolutely necessary as a parent to monitor your child to ensure that he is brushing his teeth regularly. You need to encourage him and make it a fun activity and not a daily chore. Your child should also see the dentist at least twice a year.

The permanent dentition represents the full set of 32 permanent teeth, the ones that will remain with the child for life. It is all the more important that parents are concerned that the transition from baby teeth to permanent teeth is a smooth one.

If the first teeth begin to erupt from about the age of 6 years, the permanent dentition is complete by the age of 16 years, except for the third molar ("wisdom table"), which may erupt from the age of 18 to 25 years.

It is important to remember that the eruption of the permanent dentition occurs differently in girls and boys.
