A Mother’s Comprehensive Guide To Baby Teeth Development

 

Upper Teeth

1. Central Incisor

Normally, these pair of teeth erupt after the two central incisors at the bottom. Your baby may show signs of pain in the 6th month before the teeth emerge. Massaging the gums can help lessen the pain. Brush with a soft baby toothbrush once the teeth appear.

  • Grows when the baby is between 8 to 12 months old
  • Sheds between ages 6 to 7

2. Lateral incisor

These sets of teeth help your baby cut food while chewing. Once your baby turns 1 it is best to visit the dentist for proper oral care.

  • Grows when the baby is between 9 to 13 months old
  • Sheds between ages 7 to 8

3. Canine (Cuspid)

Like the lateral incisors, these sets of teeth also help your baby tear food that have more texture. You can give your baby a teether or something soft, yet safe, to chew on to distract them from the pain. This also lessens the pain.

  • Grows when the baby is between 16 to 22 months old
  • Sheds between ages 10 to 12

4. First Molar

When these erupt, you can expect the baby to be a little bit more grumpy than usual because of the pain. Your baby may lose his or her appetite as well, coupled with diarrhea and fever.

  • Grows when the baby is between 13 to 19 months old
  • Sheds between ages 9 to 11

5. Second Molar

This is the most painful stage of teeth emerging for your baby considering it is the largest of them all. Your regular method of gum soothing may not work anymore. You need to find other means to ease the pain.

  • Grows when the baby is between 25 to 33 months old
  • Sheds between ages 10 to 12

Lower Teeth

1. Second Molar

The emergence of the second molar can be very painful, you can give the baby chilled vegetables to sooth the gums. You need to pay close attention when you do this though because they can choke on broken pieces of vegetables.

  • Grows when the baby is between 23 to 31 months old
  • Sheds between ages 10 to 12

2. First Molar


Another way to relieve the pain on the gums for your baby is to let him/her suck on a baby bottle filled water. Avoid liquids with sugar content since this can result in tooth decay if exposed for a long time.

  • Grows when the baby is between 14 to 18 months old
  • Sheds between ages 9 to 11

3. Canine (Cuspid)

Providing a chilled hard rubber teething ring, not a water-filled one, is a good way to let your baby ease the pain on the gums.

  • Grows when the baby is between 17 to 23 months old
  • Sheds between ages 9 to 12

4. Lateral Incisor

Your baby can drool more often during this time. Make sure you keep the area around his/her mouth dry with a bib or dry cloth to prevent rashes. This can add to their discomfort.

  • Grows when the baby is between 10 to 16 months old
  • Sheds between ages 7 to 8

5. Central Incisor

More often than not, these pairs of teeth come out first before the central incisors on the top. You can start massaging the gums on the 6th month with damp gauze pad or washcloth to ease the pain. A clean finger will also do.

  • Grows when the baby is between 6 to 10 months old
  • Sheds between ages 6 to 7

 

Helpful Tips For Soothing A Teething Baby


Teething babies can be fussy when a tooth (or set of teeth) is about to emerge. To help ease the pain and reduce your baby’s anxiety, you can do the following things to soothe your child:

  • Massage your baby’s gum using your clean finger or a damp washcloth.
  • Give a teething ring made of hard rubber.
  • Give hard food like peeled and chilled cucumber. Note: This is only possible if your baby is old enough to eat hard food.
  • Use over-the-counter remedies. But make sure to consult your pediatrician first.
