Milk teeth

Summary Information: Milk teeth

Milk teeth: The milk teeth are the first set of teeth that people develop as babies. The milk teeth begin to erupt in the gums at about six months of age. There are 24 milk teeth, which are bony structures and tools that infants and young children use to chew, grasp, cut and grind food. By doing these actions, the milk teeth begin the process of ingestion and digestion. Milk teeth gradually become loose and are lost and replaced by permanent teeth. This occurs in late childhood.

Conditions that afflict the milk teeth include broken/missing teeth, dental caries, nursing bottle mouth, and developmental abnormalities.
