Eruption Charts: Not As Scary As They Sound

Learn More About Your Smile From Your Boulder County Cosmetic Dentist

Hello Boulder County! Thanks for visiting the Boulder County Smiles dental blog. Today we’re talking about eruption charts and what they are used for.

First, an eruption chart is simply a listing of the different types of teeth in the mouth and when, on average, they come out, or ‘erupt’, from the gums. A primary teeth eruption chart will also tell you when to expect the different teeth to be lost.

Dentists in the Lafayette, CO and Boulder areas use these charts to compare the development of their patients’ teeth to the average times in the population.
