  • Depends. Alll babies are different. Mine started around 4 months. And got two teeth at 7 months.

  • The average is between 4 and 9 months. My son is 9 months and has NO teeth yet. Some babies are born with teeth while others don't get teeth until 12 months. So I guess the answer is any time in the first year...

  • In general, if a child has no teeth at 15 months, they should see a dentist. That's about as specific as it gets... normal, healthy kids start getting them in the first 15 months ( or earlier if they are born with a few).
