Q.

Teething

Good day,

I have a 17 month old son. He cut his first tooth (upper canine) a month ago. Although his gums appear quite swollen &  he is in immense pain, no other teeth have appeared. I know this is quite unusual.

Should I take him to a dentist? If so, what will be the course of action?

Thank you.

it's not unusual to have delayed eruption of baby teeth. if he is immense pain, have him seen to at your dentist who will decide on the course of action after he has examined your son
