Teething – what parents have to do when babies develop teeth
Teething on babies begin during the first year of age. Most babies will develop teeth between 6 and 12 months.
Around 3 months of age, babies increase saliva and start to put their hands in their mouth, but first tooth usually appears later, around 6 months old.
The bottom incisors (lower central incisors) are usually the first to come in, usually at around 5 to 7 months. Typically, most children will have all of their baby teeth by age 3.

The general order of eruption of primary teeth is:
- Bottom incisors (bottom front teeth): the first to come through, usually at around 6 to 10 months
- Top incisors (top front teeth): these tend to come through at about 8 to 12 months
