When Do Milk Teeth Start to Appear?

Milk teeth begin to erupt between 6 and 8 months after birth. When the child is 30 months old, there are 20 milk teeth.

With the formation of permanent teeth in child tooth development, the roots of milk teeth melt. All of the milk teeth fall out at about the age of 12 and are replaced by permanent teeth.
