Dental A to Z

Also in D:

Deciduous Teeth [primary, temporary, milk or baby teeth]

So-called because like the leaves on some trees they are eventually shed or exfoliated. The deciduous teeth start shedding from the age of 5 years or so [slightly earlier in girls] with the loss of the lower central incisors. The replacement process finishes when the last deciduous molar is lost by about 12-13 years of age.
