Permanent Central Incisor 7th Yr

Last Updated: Jun 23, 2015

The permanent central incisor usually appears in the seventh year of life and is part of the secondary, or permanent, teeth. The central incisor teeth, or front teeth, precede the lateral incisors and start the arrangement of the teeth from the midline of the mouth. The incisors are chisel-shaped, and their sharp edges bite off relatively large pieces of food.
