Understanding your baby's teeth chart

Although some infants are born with teeth, this is a rare occurrence and babies usually begin to develop their first tooth during the sixth month of life, or shortly thereafter. The baby's first tooth usually comes around the age of six months. However, for a few babies, the primary or deciduous teeth may take longer to emerge.

Most children have two to four teeth by the time they turn one year old. The eruption of baby teeth continues until about the age of two and a half when most children already have their entire set of 20 primary teeth.
