Your child's primary teeth usually begin to break through the gums (erupt) at about 6 months of age. This is called teething.
Your child's first permanent molars emerge from the gum behind the primary teeth at about age 6, at the same time he or she begins to lose front primary teeth.
Normally, a person will have 32 adult teeth.
