Do You Have a Teething Toddler?

Posted by on Aug 3, 2014 in Blogs | 0 comments

The teething process is often an uncomfortable and challenging experience for toddlers. However, for some toddlers, teething can be painless! The severity of teething symptoms often varies from child to child. In general, your child’s first teeth may arrive any time between 3 months and 12 months of age. The first teeth to come in are usually the two lower front teeth, also known as the central incisors. In about 1 to 2 months following the lower front teeth, the four front upper teeth, also known as the central and lateral incisors, typically appear. When your child reaches about 3 years old, all 20 primary teeth may be present!

Primary teeth may seem insignificant because they’re temporary, but they’re key in the development of healthy permanent teeth. Your child’s primary teeth not only help  with chewing, but also with speaking clearly! It is important to start taking care of your child’s primary teeth as soon as they become visible.
