Permanent tooth eruption varies very much from the incisors, molars and the premolars and also depends on if they are from the upper or lower tooth.

But in general permanent tooth begin to erupt starting with the central incisors (at age of 7-8 yrs) , molars (from 11-14 years) and wisdom tooth (after 20 years age).
