Deciduous tooth eruption (DTE) was studied in 366 Jewish Israeli children: 193 boys and 173 girls. The number of erupted teeth (NET) at different ages was similar in both sexes. No statistically significant correlation was found between NET and anthropometric measurements at birth (weight and length) or subsequently, after eliminating the influence of age, between NET and weight, height, and head circumference. The high normal variability in NET at a given age is demonstrated.
