Your daughter is definitely slow with her teething. If she does show some signs of teething then her teeth will appear.

Hi there,

My friend''s child got his first tooth when he was 18 months. I wouldn''t worry too much about it. He is now five years old and has all his baby teeth.

I also heard that the later the teeth come out, the stronger they are. But, I think this might be an old wives'' tale.

If you''re still worried, I would book an appointment with a dentist. They can make an X-ray and see if the teeth are all there.

Hope this helps.
