Each and every kid will have a different pattern in which their teeth erupt. Generally, we all have a total of twenty baby teeth which would all have erupted at around two to three years of age.
To track your baby’s new teeth, remember that for every six months of your child’s age a new tooth erupts, usually girls precede boys, lower teeth comes out first through gums before upper teeth, most of the time teeth erupt in pairs (one on right side and other on the left) and milk teeth are smaller and whiter compared with permanent teeth.
So the first teeth to erupt are the lower front teeth then upper front teeth and then other teeth begin to slowly erupt and fill the gaps mostly in pairs.
By the time the child reaches the age of four you will start to notice spacing between their teeth, which is important to create space for the new larger permanent teeth which start to erupt at around six years of age.
