  • Some children have delayed dental age. If at the age of 11 months, he does not have any tooth then there is nothing to worry about. You cannot compare the dental age of two children. If you are very apprehensive then you can visit a Pedodontist and get an xray done to see the position of the underlying tooth. Normally the lower front teeth they come first and they erupt at age of 6 months but sometimes in some children they erupt as late as 12 months. For more info on dentition you can read this article wherein details of eruption of all teeth is explained... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-tooth-development-and-eruption-933.aspx
