Accordingly, what is the first primary tooth to erupt?
The first primary teeth to erupt are usually the lower central incisors (see 'Photo guide: tooth eruption in children').
Secondly, how long does it take for a tooth to erupt? Teething, or primary tooth eruption, usually begins around six months of age, but it is normal for teething to start at any time between three to 12 months of age. The front teeth are the first to erupt at around six to eight months; the back teeth erupt between 18 and 24 months.

What causes early tooth eruption?
Early eruption of a single tooth is more frequent and is usually caused by local etiological factors, such as premature loss of a temporary tooth which is itself most often caused by dental decay.
