Always remember that all children are different. I have seen children who get their first tooth at 18 months!
I wouldnt worry if I were you.

My son had a heart operation at the age of 3. Before his op, his 4 front teeth had to be extracted. He is 8 years old now and there's no sign of new teeth as yet. Is it anything to be concerned about.
