The first set of teeth, which are lost and replaced with permanent teeth. Typically there are ten baby teeth. Although there are guidelines as to when these teeth develop, erupt into the mouth and are lost, there is typically a significant amount of variation between individuals as to when these events happen. A consultation with a dentist or orthodontist is required to determine if the development is within normal parameters.
