When do babies start teething?


For one baby cutting a tooth might happen overnight without pain, while another child might have to go through a long, drawn out and painful experience as a lot of things are dependent upon the resistance power of the child. You may sometimes visibly see a rise or lump in the gum for several weeks, while sometimes there may be no visible clue at all until the tooth actually appears and hence one can not judge exactly as to what is the time when teething will begin. The process of teething often follows hereditary patterns, so if the mother and father teethed early or late, your baby may follow the same pattern of teething.
Time of teething:
On average the first tooth comes in during the seventh month, even though it can arrive as early as three months, as late as a year, or in rare cases even earlier or later depending upon the genetic factors. In total there are twenty primary first teeth, which is twelve less than the full set of thirty-two permanent teeth adults have. Most children have a full set of primary teeth by the time they are around two or three years old and these teeth usually last until about the age of six, when the teeth that were first to appear become loose and fall out as the second teeth begin to push through the gums.
Primary teeth:
The primary teeth continue falling out until roughly the age of twelve and again, these ages mentioned above are only averages and your child may follow an earlier or later pattern. The following is the most common prototype in which your baby's teeth will usually appear. Even whist your baby is growing inside you the first teeth are forming under the gums as teeth are important for chewing food, talking, positioning teeth for straight and healthy growth and producing a warm smile.
