GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT

The following video demonstrates the Growth and Development of your teeth, skeleton and facial futures from age 6 to 21:

  • Age 6 is when children start to lose their primary (baby) teeth and also the eruption of their permanent (adult) 1st Molars (6-year molars)
  • Age 21 is typically when young adults 3rd molars (wisdom teeth) will have fully developed

Note that girls often develop faster than boys.
