Q: My baby is one year old and has no teeth. Should I be worried or is he just late teething?

A: The first tooth usually erupts between the ages of six months to one year.  If teeth haven’t appeared by about age 18 months, this is unusual and you should bring your child to the dentist for an x-ray to check if the teeth are under the gums or possibly congenitally missing.  Consider bringing your child to a pediatric specialist soon if you are very concerned.
