my son is ten months old and no teeth yet

My son didn't get his first two teeth until he was 8 months old. Then a few weeks later he got the top two. He is now 12 months old and has 9 teeth!!! He got them all in a 4 month period. They will come in when they are ready. My mother told me that my brother didn't get any teeth at all until he was 12 months old. Every kid is different. Be glad you don't have to worry about keeping them brushed. It's so hard to get in the habit of doing that before they fall asleep.

My husband got his first teeth when he was almost two. My brother in laws daughter didn't get teeth until she was 18 months. My daughter was almost 1 and my son will be 1 in 2 weeks. He still has no teeth. They say though, the older they are when the teeth come out, the healthier they are. Don't worry- that just means he'll have good teeth.

My oldest granddaughter didn't get any teeth she was 18 months old. THe dr/dentist wasn't worried about it. SHe ate everyting including pork chopes, chicken, steak, etc. so they said her gums were so tough that it just took longer for them to cut through.

It's ok, those babies learn to gum everything!!! Plus, enjoy it, you don't have to stay up with a screaming baby because of their gums hurting or a baby that wants to be held ALL night long so you get no sleep or a baby that hits/bites... the joys of teething!!! :) :) :)

Our oldest daughter was 13 and a half months and had 2 teeth. When I asked out dentist he said that if she had been eating table food for some time that her gums could just be really tough. But I agree with Heather if you are concerned check with your Dr. or Dentist.

Yep, some babies get teeth late. My daughter didn't get her first 2 bottom teeth until 9 months, and then it took another 2 months for any more to grow in.
Definitely ask your doctor if you are concerned. One good thing though, is that research has shown babies whose teeth grow in later have stronger teeth. :)
