Teething can be painful for babies — and their parents, too! So, when can you expect your baby to begin teething, and how long will this stage last? Usually teething begins around 6 to 10 months of age and lasts until baby is about 25 to 33 months.
Can baby teeth last forever?
For most children, all baby teeth will fall out by early adolescence and be replaced by permanent adult teeth; by age 21, most permanent teeth should be present in the mouth. Occasionally, though, some baby teeth never fall out, and for this reason, an adult tooth cannot replace it.
How long does teething pain last for each tooth?
Dont be alarmed, teething isnt constant from five to 33 months. In fact, each tooth or pair of teeth should only cause your little one pain for just over a week. In other words, for five days ahead of an appearance – eruption day – and three days afterwards (Macknin et al, 2000).
Why do dentists pull baby teeth?

In a serious injury, for example, baby teeth may be cracked, loosened, or impacted, and may need to be removed. A baby tooth that is significantly decayed or infected may also require extraction.
