Chronology of the eruption of the permanent teeth
The permanent dentition is formed by thirty-two teeth, sixteen upper and sixteen lower; these are called: central incisors; lateral incisors; canines; first premolars; second premolars; and first, second and third molars. These teeth usually complete their eruption with the appearance of the canines at thirteen or fourteen years of age and, later, at eighteen years of age or older, the third molars appear. The permanent dentition in women usually presents a more rounded form of the individual teeth and more harmonic angles whereas, in men, the angles are more marked and the free borders are flatter (6)(7).
