Q.

14 months old &  NO teeth

Good day Dr,

My son is 14 months old &  still does not have any teeth. He has been teething for a while now but unfortunately none of his teeth have made an appearence. He is quite restless, irritable &  hardly sleeps as he is constantly chewing on his dummy.

Why are his teeth taking so long to appear? What can we do to help it along?

I''m so desperate, please help.

Thank you.

Many children expreience delayed eruption of teeth. However 14 months with no teeth is rare.
Have him checked at the dentist.
