Teething Timeline: Infancy to Young Adult Carrollton, GA
Pediatric Dentist Carrollton GA

As a parent, it helps to be informed about your child’s teething schedule so that you know when to expect those new pearly whites. At the office of Dr. Tejal Kakade, your child’s smile is important to us, beginning from the time the first tooth emerges until the last set of molars emerge in young adulthood. Therefore, we are happy to provide full service pediatric dentistry at our Carrollton office. Understanding this basic teething timeline can help you stay ahead of your child’s growing smile.

4-10 Months: This is when you will be celebrating a milestone of your baby’s first tooth. You will also get to experience signs of teething beforehand, which may include excessive drooling, biting and irritability. Let us know if you need help easing your child’s discomfort during teething.

1 to 3 Years: Into the toddler years, you can expect to watch your child’s smile fill with tiny teeth. By the age of 3, he or she should be sporting a full set of 20 chompers. Remember to bring your child for a first dental visit during their first year.

6 to 11: It’s time to start saying goodbye to those cute baby teeth. Your child may lose his or her first tooth around age 5 or 6, but this can vary. In general, teeth fall out in pairs and in the same order that they emerged. Expect to keep the tooth fairy busy through elementary school.

12 to 13 Years: Among other pre-teen happenings, your child will also be getting nearly all of their adult teeth by this age. They may also be in charge of their own oral hygiene, so make sure they are taking care of those new permanent teeth like they should.

16 to 25 Years: Although it may seem like teething should be done for good, there is one final set of molars to emerge during young adulthood (or even later). The last set of molars, also known as wisdom teeth, are unfortunately known for causing more harm than good. Your dentist can evaluate these emerging molars to make sure they aren’t coming in sideways or impacted. In such cases, they may need to be removed.

Remember, these dates represent an average timeline. Every child has a uniquely emerging smile. If you have concerns or questions about how your child’s teeth are coming in (or not coming in), please let us know. We are proud to be your partner for a lifetime of healthy smiles.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Calm and peaceful office.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
