Pediatric Care for Children & Adults

At Summerville Pediatric Dentistry, we are focused on the dental care of children from infancy through adolescence. We help guide children and parents to create positive dental habits from an early age in order to prevent future dental problems.

Infant Tooth Eruption 

A child’s teeth actually start forming before birth. As early as 4 months of age, the primary or “baby” teeth push through the gums—the lower central incisors are first, then the upper central incisors. The remainder of the 20 primary teeth typically erupt by age 3, but the place and order varies.

Permanent teeth begin eruption around age 6, starting with the first molars and lower central incisors. This process continues until around age 21. Adults have 28 secondary (permanent) teeth—32 including the third molars (wisdom teeth).
