Baby teething chart
Your baby’s first tooth is a momentous occasion. Here’s a keepsake that you can print and personalise for your baby as a permanent record of when each tooth popped through and any of your “teething memories”.
Simply use the print button on your web browser to print the chart.
Your baby’s teeth will usually appear in this order:
- The lower incisors
- The upper incisors
- The upper side teeth
- The lower side teeth
- The first upper molars (back teeth)
- The first lower molars
- The upper canines
- The lower canines
- The lower second molars
- The upper second molars
When can I expect them to come out?
Teeth usually begin to erupt in the following sequence - however these timelines are not cast in stone and may vary from child to child:
Incisors – 8-13 months
Canines – 16-22 months
1st Molars – 13-19 months
2nd Molars – 25-33 months
The incisors are used for cutting, whilst the canines tear and the molars grind foodstuffs. Each side of the jaw holds 2 incisors, 1 canine and 2 molars.
Why do we get baby teeth?
The primary dentition of a child consisting of 20 teeth in total (10 upper and 10 lower) maintains space in the growing and developing upper and lower jaws to enable the adult dentition of 32 teeth in total to come out.
