At iGrin Children’s Dentistry we do our best to keep parents informed abut their child’s developmental process so that they will not be surprised by anything. Here is a complete guide to the care and keeping of your baby’s teeth as well as the normal timeline for your little one. The average baby starts to develop teeth anywhere from 3 to 14 months. Most parents start to see them poke through around the 6 month mark. Preemies tend to develop their chompers a little later. The experience of teething can be as variable as the child’s personality. Some babies can experience most of the negative symptoms, while some do not experience any at all. Typically, teeth come in two at a time. It is common for the middle two teeth to pop out first and then a month or so later, the two upper teeth start to develop. Here is a general timeline for the teething process. At about the six month mark the bottom lower teeth will start to poke through the bottom. Around the eight month mark the top two will develop. From the ten to twenty-four month range, teeth begin to crowd in the mouth and finally the adult teeth form behind them in the gums.
