My daughter is 23 months old and getting her first set of Molars but she hasn't gotten her Cuspids(canines) in yet. Should I be concerned?

She didn't get her first two teeth until 13 months, her teething started late. i know not all kids get their teeth at the same time I just thought the order they came in was a pretty standard thing.

  • My tot is the same, she had her molars before her canine teeth. In fact hers are just coming in right now and she's had her molars for a few months.

  • @ anonymmous That is the website I looked at earlier. Cuspids are canines, Incisors are 4 front top and bottom.
