Primary teeth, also known as deciduous teeth, milk teeth, or baby teeth, are a set of 20 teeth that children have before “shedding” them and getting their permanent adult teeth.
Did you know that these baby teeth start forming even before birth? In fact, some babies are born with some teeth that have already broken through the gum! (Can you imagine?!) But for most children, their baby teeth will start making their debut sometime in the first year of life.
