What age did your child get his/her first tooth? My daughter just turned 1 and has yet to get a tooth.

So what is a normal age to get their first tooth? My other girls had their first one by 9 months. Last time she was at the Dr he said any time, but she still hasn't gotten one. She goes back next week I just want to see if any other babies didn't get their first tooth until later.

  • My Son was 9 mo. BUT even the Dentist will tell you the later they cut Teeth, the better! They usually are in better condition and hold their place better for Adult Teeth when they come in. Don't worry..

  • Both of my girls got their teeth real early. But a friend of mine said their DD did not get her first tooth until she was 15 months old.

  • It differs for every child. My son had his first 4 teeth by 5 months - the first tooth broke through the day he turned 4 months. By 9 months, he had 8 teeth. So, really, it's different for every child. I think the only thing that is "standard' is the order in which they come out.
