Answer: Hi dear, 6 months is common to get a first tooth but that its completely normal not to see teeth as late as 18 months. A number of things may be to blame when a child's tooth eruption falls outside the normal schedule. Sometimes, late tooth eruption is simply a family trait. Preemie and low-birthweight babies may also experience delayed tooth eruption, and the teeth can have enamel defects that come with it.
Answer: If your 16 month-old baby still has not produced his first teeth and you have confirmed that delayed teething doesn’t run in the family, it is time to see his doctor. The doctor can determine if the teething problem is due to poor nutrition, hypothyroidism or some other cause. You will get a referral to a pediatric dentist if your baby still has a toothless grin when he is 18 months old. Hope this helps.

Question: My 1yr old baby boy still doesn't have no teeth.. is it normal r any prblm
Answer: Yes it's normal. My nephew didn't get his first tooth til he was a little over 14 month. I remember reading that some babies are born with no teeth in their gums, and worrying that he'll never get teeth.
Some babies are born with teeth and there are some that don't get their first tooth til they are at least a year old. If your baby falls anywhere in that range, they are perfectly normal.
If they haven't got their first tooth by the time they are 18 months, you should take your child to your doctor to rule out any problems.
