Complete Adult Teeth

Just wonder what sort of age do most children have their complete adult teeth?

Not sure what the average age is, but my daughter is 12. She just had two removed by the dentist as she is due to have a brace next spring and they want to catch the two adult teeth as they come through as they are due to grow inwards (her other teeth stick outwards severely the other way). She has one left which is a little wobbly, so for her I'd say she will have all her adult teeth before she is 14.

I have patients as young as 8 ( very early) to 17 with retained baby teeth who require them removing to allow the adult teeth to com through, and everyone else is in the middle!
