Dutch term or phrase: permanent gebit
Does this mean an original set of teeth as opposed to artificial (dentures)?

De aanbevolen dosis bedraagt tot 0.75 ml voor een permanent gebit.

Many thanks!

permanent/second teeth
Explanation:
Permanent/second teeth as opposed to milk/primary teeth (melkgebit)

Most parents consider using a dummy to comfort their baby at some time during their first few months. They provide comfort as well as helping to prevent colic and overfeeding. Nearly all babies in Western culture either suck their thumb, one of their fingers or a dummy. Dummies are safe as long as they are given up by the time the child’s permanent or second teeth come through.

Teeth bite and chew food so that it is small enough to be swallowed. Teeth help you to form words so that you can speak properly. You will have noticed that when young kids lose their front teeth their voices sound quite different. Your first teeth are called deciduous teeth. They may also be called milk teeth, baby teeth or primary teeth. Your second teeth are called permanent teeth (also called adult teeth).
