Babies are born with all their teeth. You can't see them because they are hidden
in the gums. Baby teeth start to break through the gums around 6 months. But it
is important to start good oral care even before the first tooth comes in. From
healthy gums come healthy teeth.
Kids have all their baby teeth by age 3. These are called primary
teeth. Baby teeth start falling out around age 6; that's when the permanent,
or adult, teeth start coming in. Gaps between baby teeth are normal. They make room
for the permanent teeth. Most permanent teeth come in by age 13.
Bottle Tooth Decay can happen if babies drink milk, formula, or juice out of bottles
over long periods of time.
