  • First baby tooth to erupt is front tooth and it usually erupts at 6months of age. In some kids, first tooth may erupt at 18 months of age and it is normal.  Baby teeth may erupt late and then will fall also late. By the time, her teeth erupts, you can use a wet cloth wrapped around your finger and clean your kid’s moth and gums to remove the food accumulates which are present on the gums. If you are apprehensive, then you can visit a pedodontist who is specialist in children dentistry. Dentist may take an x-ray to see the positioning of baby teeth. Some systemic, genetic, local factors can cause delayed eruption of baby teeth. If you get a check up done from a general dentist, then it will cost around $25-$75 and if you get your daughter’s teeth evaluated from a specialist, then it will cost you $75-$125. X-ray cost will be additional depending on type of radiograph which is taken.  For more info on teeth eruption pattern, refer to…   http://www.identalhub.com/article_human-dentition-233.aspx
