Is it okay that my toddler has no teeth?

She is 19 months old.


Answer by  Roland27 (16334)

She should have a bunch of teeth by now. Usually by 6th months old babies get their first teeth. I would take her to her pediatrician if I were you. This is highly unusual.

As long as your child's doctor is not showing any concern you should be fine. if you want to be certain that everything is okay you can take her to a pediatric dentist where they will preform x-rays to determine where her teeth are in development. Make sure she is drinking lots of milk.

I would check with the doctor, she should have cut some by now. Maybe a dentist would be better, he can take exrays and see if the teeth are there but haven't cut through the gums.

Usually toddlers have all of their baby teeth by 24 months. I would be concerned if your child has no teeth at all. I would make an appointment with a dentist and get a professional opinion. Nutrition is sometimes a reason for delayed teeth. Best to check.

Most children get their first tooth between 6 months to a year. This is something that you should take to a pediatrician and or a dentist about.

This could be normal, especially if there is a family history of late teething, but usually by this age most children have most of their teeth. A pediatric dentist can perform X-rays to make sure that all the teeth are there.
