Permanent Teeth

The second set of teeth. Typically there are 32 permanent teeth consisting of 8 incisors, 4 canines, 8 premolars and 12 molars. Missing teeth and extra teeth are common. Typically the first permanent tooth erupts around age 6 but there can be variations in the age in which this happens. A consultation with a dentist or orthodontist is required to determine if the development is within normal parameters.
