Q.

Teeth

Hi Doc

My son is 17 months and he only has 8 teeth (4 on top and 4 at the buttom). The problem is that I can see the other teeth at the top and at the buttom part of the teeth is out for the past 2 months now but the are just not cutting completely (I think it his molars). Is there a problem or is it just fine.

This is very common. Your son's teeth will appear.
