Deciduous Teeth

Summary Information: Deciduous Teeth

Deciduous Teeth: The deciduous teeth are the first set of teeth that people develop as babies. The deciduous teeth begin to erupt in the gums at about six months of age. There are 24 deciduous 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 deciduous teeth begin the process of ingestion and digestion. Deciduous teeth are gradually lost and replaced by permanent teeth. This occurs in late childhood.

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