Teething can sometimes be a tricky time but it is also an exciting time as your baby’s first ‘milk’ teeth emerge. As Experts in Oral Health since 1925 Bickiepegs have created a teething chart to guide you through the timeline of the appearance of these first teeth. In the same way as you measure you child’s height, why not track the dates when each first tooth comes out or when the second tooth forms with our Bickiepegs Teething Chart.

What holds the teeth in place?
Your Gums and your bones! Teeth are held in place in the mouth by 3 important structures; the gingiva or gums, the alveolar bone, and the periodontal ligament.
