Tooth Eruption and Shedding
Eruption of Primary Teeth (Baby Teeth)
Tooth eruption begins around the age of 6 months and can last until the age of 3 years. During this stage, your child’s gums may be sore and irritable. You can soothe them by gently rubbing the gums with a cold, wet cloth, the back of a cold spoon, or a clean finger.
The timing and sequence for the eruption of a child’s 20 primary teeth (baby teeth) is as follows:
A child’s central teeth, both upper and lower, are the first to appear and then other teeth erupt sequentially moving toward the back of the arch. The exception to this is the first molars, which typically erupt before the cuspids (canines). The first teeth to erupt are the lower and upper central incisors, which erupt between the ages of 6-12 months. The next to erupt are the lateral incisors between 9-16 months, followed by the first molars from 13-19 months. Next, the cuspids (canines) erupt from 16-23 months. Lastly, between 23 and 33 months, the second molars erupt.
Baby Tooth Shedding
Children typically begin shedding their primary teeth at the age of 6 years, starting with the central incisors and followed about a year later by the lateral incisors. The first molars are shed next, closely followed by the lower canines. The upper canines and both upper and lower second molars are shed last.

Should be 10 stars without a doubt. It's taken me sometime to figure out how to write a review for such an amazing place and I'm not sure I'll do it justice still. From the owner to her staff everyone I had the pleasure of interacting with was nothing short of perfection. They all were so friendly and understanding. I had some major work done throughout a few appointments and to be honest when I was living in FL I had the perfect dentist so of course I was nervous about someone new but wow from the moment I walked through the door I knew I found perfection twice. Anyone looking for services they offer should immediately look no further. Trust me you won't regret it. I did want to grab some photos but I'll have to grab them next time I'm there. I may update this review if I can find a better way to word things im trying to say.
Advanced Family Dentistry is a great Dentist Office. Very relaxing environment. Everyone is so professional, friendly and cheerful. They listen to your concerns and address them immediately. I am very pleased with the results and service of my needs. They do a wonderful job. I would recommend them for any dental needs.
I had not been to the dentist in over 10 yrs so I was uneasy about my visit. The team at Advanced Family Dentistry put me at ease. I met Angela who was assigned my case. It could not have been better! Angela was professional and went above and beyond in how she explained everything she was doing. I could not have asked for a better person to take care of me. I am so glad my daughter pushed me to go. My teeth feel great!
My wife and I both are quite happy with Dr Bhat satisfying all of our dental needs. I have never had so much confidence that my treatment will always be exactly right. We can confidently refer anyone to Advanced Family Dentistry. All of the staff are always cheery and make the whole experience a pleasure.
What.a wonderful experience! Dr Bhat and her staff,especially Jessie, were great! I have been going to same dentist for years and was nervous about the change. I am grateful they were so competent and pleasant.
