Does anyone else have a toddler that hardly has any teeth? My son is 4 months away from being 2. he only has 7 teeth, and none are showing signs of cutting through any time soon...I know every baby is different and things happen at there own pace. But when can i expect all his teeth to finally be here?

my 1 1/2 year old daughter has no teeth at all, i was told to wait till she was two then take her to the dentist if she still doesnt have any, if your still worried when he turns two take him in and ask your dentist if you should be worried

our littlr girl didn't cut her first tooth until almost 10 mo.she is now 2 1/2 and only has 14. the dentist says not to worry some kids don't get them all in untill 3 or so.

Well he just got his 8th tooth a few days ago. I see all kinds of toddlers his age at his school with a full mouth of teeth and he hardly has any. Is it normal for them to be so slow coming in. I mean i was always told once the first tooth comes in they will all start to come in at once lol. That is so not even true because My son has been barely popping them in.

Most children have a full set of 20 primary teeth (also called baby teeth or milk teeth) by the age of 2½ to 3 years. This set includes the second molars, which will probably erupt when your toddler is between 20 and 30 months of age.
