Delayed dentition

Posted by: wj2228  (2 years ago)
Hi! My daughter is already 1 year and two months old but she has no teeth yet. I cannot feel any teeth coming through her gums. Is it normal to have no teeth emerged yet at this age? Is there something that could be done about it? Thank you for your help in advance!

14 months is pretty late not to have erupted any baby teeth, but it is not unheard of. What can you do, really? It is impossible to take x-rays on a 1 year old. All you can do is wait. I guess you should be worried if she doesn't get any within the next 4 months.

In older children, the gums sometimes get leathery, especially in mouth breathers, and delay eruption of permanent teeth. In those cases, I make a small incision and the teeth come in quickly after that. I would hate to have to do that in a one year old, though.
