All you need to know about Permanent Teeth

What is more adorable than a child missing his/her two front teeth? Those two missing teeth are something that the parents eagerly await. After that, there are clumsy grins, next round of teething and huge permanent teeth. The latter will need to last for the rest of their lives. Although you will likely have your permanent teeth, you are not a dentist to know in detail about these teeth. To know more information read ahead.

Primary teeth or the so-called baby teeth will start coming in approximately when you are six months old and will continue to appear until the age of 2 or 3. Ultimately all the baby teeth are replaced by permanent teeth. It starts when you are around the age of 5 and will continue throughout adulthood, where wisdom teeth will also emerge. For a start, we are born with 20 primary teeth, and they are finally replaced with 32 adult teeth.

Speaking about the baby teeth, they help the kids in chewing their food, and they further hold space within the jaw for the arrival of the more bigger permanent teeth. When we speak of the primary teeth, there are ten teeth at the top and 10 in the bottom as well. With the arrival of the permanent or adult teeth, there are 16 teeth at the top and 16 in the bottom. The adult teeth when they appear are more prominent and slightly darker.

When exactly do permanent teeth come in

Speaking of the permanent teeth, they pop up in the same order as the primary teeth do (i.e.) front bottom, front top and back towards the molars. Usually, the first teeth that come out, ultimately end up loose and they fall out. They are then finally replaced by the permanent teeth. Everything will proceed without a hitch unless there is tooth damage caused by trauma, bad dental hygiene and any medical conditions.

Typically, most of the children will begin losing teeth around the age of 5 to 6, and most of them will have permanent teeth by age 12 0r 13.  They include four front teeth on top and bottom going by the name central incisors, four lateral incisors which are the teeth between the canines and the front teeth. Then comes four canine teeth and overall eight molars. Two molars come in without replacing the baby teeth.

The last ones to arrive are the wisdom teeth also known as “third molars”. In some cases, they might not even grow, but if they do, it is between the ages of 17 to 21. Your Dentist In Thoraipakkam will provide suggestions about cleaning them and whether they ought to be removed or not.

With the arrival of permanent teeth, you must provide excellent dental care to ensure that there is a big, joyful and healthy smile that gets retained for the rest of the life.
