Dental and Oral Health (Children)

Late teething??

04/18/2006

Question:

My daughter had her first pair of teeth when she was 7 to 8 months. Now she is 13 months and she still didn`t get any new ones. What could that mean?

Answer:

The age range for erupting baby teeth is very broad but it is unusual that she hasn't erupted any more teeth by 13 months of age. This is a good time to take her to a pediatric dentist for a complete examination.
