Primary tooth emergence in Pakistani children was investigated as a part of a prospective interdisciplinary study of growth and development. The average order of emergence of the primary teeth was in agreement with previous studies from other countries. There was no sex difference in emergence of individual primary teeth. The emergence of the primary incisors and mandibular first molars in both sexes, and the canines in boys were significantly delayed compared to Swedish standards (Hägg & Taranger 1986).
