There is no specific age at which the baby starts teething. But generally babies get their first tooth between 4 and 7 months of age, but in some baby’s it can start much later. Usually, you will notice the front incisors first, but sometimes the top two might make their appearance first. Next, the canines will make their appearance and then the eight molars.
