At about six years of age children start to loose their primary teeth.

The incisors and first molars start to come in during the ages 6 to 9. The first and second premolars also the canines erupt between 10 to 12 years. The second molars come in from 12 to 13 years. The third molars which are wisdom teeth erupt between the ages of 17 and 21. Sometimes there is so abrupt development that there isn't room in a person's mouth for all the permanent teeth. In that condition the wisdom teeth may not come out or grow. This Overcrowding of the teeth is one of main reasons people get braces.
