Tooth eruption is a process in tooth development in which the teeth enter the mouth and become visible. The first human teeth to appear, the deciduous (primary) teeth (also known as baby or milk teeth), erupt into the mouth from around 6 months until 2 years of age, in a process known as “teething”.

2. Incisors erupt in clockwise fashion at a difference of 2 months starting from lower central incisor.
3. Lower and upper canines and molar at around similar time.
4. 2-4-6 rule for canines and molars.
Eruption of Primary Teeth:
Upper central incisor: 8 months
Upper lateral incisor: 10 months
Lower lateral incisor: 12 months
1st molars: 12 months + 2 = 14 months
Canines: 14 months + 4 = 18 months
2nd molars: 18 months + 6 = 24 months
