Permanent Teeth

Primary teeth gradually begin to fall out at the age of about six years to make way for permanent (adult) teeth. A complete set of permanent teeth includes 32 teeth: eight incisors, four canines, eight premolars and twelve molars, including the four wisdom teeth. Generally speaking, the full set of adult teeth is formed by the age of about 12 or 13 years, not including wisdom teeth, which erupt at the age of 16 to 18 years.

Many adult patients, however, exhibit dental agenesis, i.e., incomplete adult dentition. Dental agenesis is most common for wisdom teeth, although it sometimes affects incisors or premolars. When incisors or premolars are affected, the corresponding primary teeth remain in place.

Sometimes, permanent tooth growth can be blocked by a lack of space, resulting in dental crowding or malocclusion. If you have concerns or questions in this regard, we would be delighted to discuss them with you!
