Dental and Oral Health (Children)
our 1 year old daughter has only 1 tooth she is 15 months old, is this normal? ive seen other toddlers her age with atleast 4 teeth.
The range of what is considered "normal" timing of eruption of baby teeth is very broad. Your daughter is at the tail end of that range, but her pattern is not yet "abnormal". Have her examined by a pediatric dentist if more teeth do not begin to erupt in the next 30-45 days.
