Teeth development


Babies begin teething at their own pace, which cannot be affected. The first milk teeth will erupt at around the age of six months. Children have a total of 20 teeth, which will erupt within the first three years of their lives. More information about teeth development and eruption can be found on the Finnish Dental Association’s website (in Finnish).
