  • My daughter's came in at 17 mos. I was a bit worried, but her pediatrician assured me they would get here. At 18 mos they start checking for any genetic or thyroid issues, but they usually have other symptoms indicating a problem as well.

    She was slow getting them, too. She got about one a month, two bottom ones coming in first. Her two-year molars didn't cut till she turned 3.

  • I have 4 children and none of them had any teeth before they were a year old or older.

  • It seemed like it took FOREVER for my daughter to get hers in! Dont worry about it sometimes it just takes a little bit longer for them to come in! :))

  • I've heard that the longer they wait like that, the stronger their gums are... Could be an old wives' tale, but thought I'd share. :)

  • I'm a Dental Assistant t and it is rare, but possible to be born without teeth. Did the dentist do an xray? If not, have the dentist take a look and see what can be done.
    The first teeth generally start coming in at 4-6 months. Usually, by 15 months, a baby has around 16 baby teeth, and by age 2, has all 20 baby teeth.
    However, it is possible for a baby to be between 12-15 months old before even the first tooth erupts.
    I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

  • My dd cut them at five months and had a mouthfull by 1 year. My nephew didn't cut his first tooth till after a year old and now at 20 months has a mouthfull. So it really just varies. I knew a girl a few years ago whose son was born with two teeth. I wouldn't worry quite yet. Have you looked at her gums? Sometimes you can see/feel them long before they break through.

  • I read up on it with my first child it says it can be hereditary. DD was 16 mo when she cut her first tooth, I have 10mo old twins and they have showed no signs of teeth either. I guess hubby was a late teether, also is brother has a son also at 10 mo with no teeth yet. so it is not unheard of
