Stay alert for permanent teeth

Young mouths go through a lot as they develop. Permanent teeth appear, on average, between 5 and 14 years.


Between 6 and 12 years old, a child has both milk teeth and permanent teeth. We call this a mixed dentition. The 32 adult teeth appear gradually. They are permanent. If their enamel wears out, it can not be replaced.  It’s important at this stage to help your child develop a good routine (that includes brushing and mouthwash), so that their permanent teeth stay that way.

The recommended dose of fluoride varies depending on your child's risk of cavities. Ask your dentist for advice.
