DD2 is almost a year and still has no teeth.

Should I be worried?

Don't know what the latest is, but DD got her 1st tooth at 11months and at 18 months only had 4 teeth.

She is 6 now and there are all there, still waiting for her to loose one actually!

A friend of mine's oldest son didn't have any teeth until he was nearly 2, I think.

I wouldn't worry about it at all. In fact, the old wives' tales say, the later they get teeth, the better teeth they'll have. And actually, my dentist agrees.

DD was 13 months old before her first tooth came through. They then came through gradually, but in the wrong order.

I did take DD to the dentist to ask about it, but was assured that it was fine. To put my mind at rest she was referred to the dental hospital at about 16 months - she only had 3 or 4 teeth max (maybe less?) and no bottom two front teeth. But all was fine.

She is now 3y 3m and has all her teeth. Her front bottom two are slightly crooked, as a result of coming through late. But dentist things this will correct itself with her second tteth.

By 18 months DS1 had all but his very back teeth.

DS2 - is now 20 months and has the front 4, top and bottom, and 2 further back at the top - so 10 teeth in total - and no sign of any more just yet

oh forgot to say - DS1 got his first tooth through just before he turned one.

DS2 had his first tooth at 10 monhts!

My DS didn't get any teeth til he was about a yearish so I wouldn't worry.

My ds was definitely over a year, and then it took an old lady in Superdrug to point out to me that he had his first one!

Do you find that even with no teeth you little ones can manage almost any food regardless? I remember DD aged 8 months, on Christmas Day, tucking happily into fillet steak, veggies, all the trimmings plus a pudding. All minus any teeth

starrynight Fri 22-Jul-05 18:11:41

Oh yeah, their gums are sooo hard aren't they!

singsong Fri 22-Jul-05 18:40:11

Ds is almost one and has only just got his first tooth.

littlerach Fri 22-Jul-05 19:12:34


Yes, I kid you not!! A tiny tooth has appeared today at the bottom.

And she isn't quite a year!!!

jessicaandbumpsmummy Fri 22-Jul-05 19:13:32

charleepeters Fri 22-Jul-05 19:14:10

DS has no toothys yet hes coming up 11 months, lots of teething signs still no actual teeth though!

bee3 Fri 22-Jul-05 19:54:12

My ds is nearly 18 months, and has a grand total of 4 teeth, with 2 more just about to emerge. He got his first at 11 months, 2nd at just over a year (both on the bottom) and one top front tooth at about 15 months.

I was a bit worried to begin with, but have been told numerous times that it really isn't a problem, and I am now perfectly relaxed about the whole thing
