A rough guide to the different stages of teething

27 JUNE 2012 While most babies start teething at around six months, all children are different and the timing of teething varies.

Here is a rough guide to the different stages that will see your little one's gummy grin transform into a toothy smile.


* Bottom front teeth (incisors) – The first to come through, at around 5-7 months

* Top front teeth (incisors) – These usually come through at around 6-8 months

* Top lateral incisors (either side of the top front teeth) – These come through at around 9-11 months

* Bottom lateral incisors (either side of the bottom front teeth) – These come through at around 10-12 months

* Canines (near the back of the mouth) – These come through at around 16-20 months

* Molars (back teeth) – These come through at around 12-16 months

* Second molars – These come through at around 20-30 months

Most children will have their full set of 20 milk teeth by their second birthday.
