Front ones: The permanent teeth generally erupt in the same order as the baby teeth. As such, the front teeth (the central incisors) usually come in first. However, there can be some variability between children.

Incisors: Usually the 2 lower front teeth, the lower central incisors. Sometimes, however, the lower 6 year molars come in first. Have your dentist check the order and alignment of your child's erupting permanent teeth. If there are any questions see an orthodontist by your child's 7th birthday. Orthodontists are specialists in growth and development of the face, teeth, and jaws.

Tooth eruption: There are 20 baby teeth and 32 permanent teeth. Typically, the lower central incisors are the first baby teeth that are lost. However, the permanent first molars are the first permanent teeth to erupt. They usually come in around 6 years old so they are also known as the 6 year molars. However, every child is different and so can the pattern of the eruption of the permanent teeth.

Probably not: At the ages children get their permanent teeth you can't blame a fever on teething. You need to consider other causes of the fever.
