Parent’s Guide to Tooth Eruption

 tooth2Have you ever wondered which teeth should come in first and which ones are next?  Have you ever wondered what teeth would show upon an x-ray?

Below, is a link to a tool that is very informative.  Be aware, however, that the first tooth can come as early as a few months and as late as 18 months and still be considered normal.  The later the better really, as then there is less time for bacteria to work on the enamel and cause tooth decay. Once your baby has teeth, start wiping them off a couple times a day and before the longest sleep stretch. You may also consider seeing a pediatric dentist. Most pediatric dentists now like to see patients right after the first tooth appears, or at age 1.
