When Do Kids Teeth Finally Stop Growing In?


Posted on 11/21/2022 by Fariba Mutschler
When Do Kids Teeth Finally Stop Growing In?Kids start growing teeth as early as three months. However, the teething process varies from one child to another. Causes of late teething could be hereditary or triggered by a medical condition. If your baby experiences late teething, you should visit our offices for checks. The teething process will last for several years before stopping. At that point, all the baby teeth will be out.

Teething in Children


Teething in children can start as early as three months. However, in most children, teething starts between 6-10 months. The teething lasts until the baby is 26-33 months. Keep in mind that teething hasn't officially stopped until the permanent molars grow in. In most cases, molars start growing when the child is around 6 to 7 years old. The second set of molars is expected between 12-13 years.

In the last stage of the teething process, second molars will appear on the bottom row. As much as most teething symptoms appear when the baby is a few months old, expect some differences as the child grows. Your child will complain about teething pain and discomfort at an older age, unlike babies who can't talk. Most babies won't show any signs of pain and discomfort and won't complain when molars come out. However, it is important to keep an eye on your child during the teething process because things can easily go wrong. Cases of overcrowded teeth could occur if the child doesn't shade off all baby teeth. This is why you should bring them to use regularly for dental checks.

Oral hygiene is also important during the teething process. You should remind your child to brush their teeth at least twice daily. You should also remind them to floss once daily. This is important because it helps get rid of bacteria. Get in touch with us for more information on the teething process in children.
My daughter was a little nervous to have her dental work done but everyone in the office was super friendly and very reassuring and that helped her nervousness go away. Thanks for the excellent dental experience. ~ Lilyana G.
