Q.

Eye Teeth / Canine' s

Morning

My son will be 2 years old in January, but he still doesnt have any eye teeth. Is this normal? He did teeth very late and he still doesnt have a full set of teeth yet.
I can see in his gums that the teeth are there, but they havent made any effort to push up.
Should I be worried? Should I see a dentist and which dentist in the East Rand would be best suited to see my 2 year old?

Your son is certainly very slow with his teething but you can see that these teeth want to come through. Give him another 3 months and if they have still not appeared then ask your dentist to see him.
