Dental and Oral Health (Children)

Baby teeth eruption

10/07/2008

Question:

my baby is 11 months old and one top central insicor has cut thru and u can barely see the other, but he has none on bottom.. is this normal?

Answer:

Babies erupt their first teeth over a broad range of time beginning as early as several months and as late as one year. Your baby is at the tail end of that range but it is not abnormal. This is a good time to schedule your baby's first dental visit to learn about upcoming oral health issues for him/her and to enable your child to establish a positive relationship with the dentist.
