Generally, children will have around 20 baby teeth. These teeth will start erupting when the baby is six months old. Usually, the first baby teeth are the front teeth, called incisors. From this moment until they are 3 years old the baby teeth will continue erupting until they are all through.
How do children’s teeth erupt and fall out? Eventually, baby teeth and its roots will dissolve, from forces of the adult tooth erupting and it is perfectly natural. They need to fall out to make way for the permanent teeth. Most kids will start losing baby teeth at the age of 5 or 6 but it can also happen as early as 4 or as late as 8 years old. Generally, children whose baby teeth erupted early also lose them early.
Baby teeth tend to fall out on their own. Sometimes, they get stuck in the food your child is eating. For stubborn teeth that don’t fall easily and just hang in there, you can ask your child to wiggle it until it falls off. When a baby tooth falls off, the permanent tooth is usually underneath the gums, just waiting to replace the tooth.
