Hi Doc, My daughter is 13.5 month old and she did not get a single tooth. I can only see a little whitish gums. Is it normal or should I get her checked?

Hello mam,      Hope you are doing good. Most of the kids are getting delayed eruption. I suggest you to wait for eruption. And please do give her more of finger foods like fresh carrots, beets to bite so that biting increases her eruption tendency. Please dont avoid hards foods inspite of no teeth. You can give safe biting foods to increase her chewing and biting tendency. Please do use teether often until teeth erupts.
