11/23/2004

Question:

I have a two year old, he has 16 teeth and has had them for the past 8 months. When will ge get more teeth or will he? Thanks

Answer:

By age 3 there should be 20 teeth.  It varies child to child when they erupt, but it should be anywhere between 14 and 33 months for the final ones to come in.
