  • The range of "normal" is HUGE when it comes to teeth. Some kids turn one with no teeth. Some are born with a few teeth - both are normal.

    Your little guy will "catch-up" with his toothier age-mates. He will probably be teething for most of the coming 12 months since he still has 14 teeth to go to make a full set of primary teeth. If you are concerned, make a note and bring it up at his 18 month check up - but your doctor will tell you he's fine.

    And, because you asked, at 16 months my DD had 16 teeth.
