My baby is coming to 11 months, until now her teeth still have not come out yet.
Can I know why or what is happening with her?

Thank you.

Hi Katrina,

Thank you for your query.

Baby’s first tooth usually erupts (appears) between 6 months to 1 year. I have in my experience often seen the first tooth appearing up to 1year 3 months. So 11 months is still fine if no tooth is in sight. We recommend starting to brush your baby’s teeth once the first tooth arrives.

Its important to remember that you shoul never allow your baby to fall asleep with a bottle of milk in his mouth as this can lead to tooth decay.

The best time to see a dentist is between 18 - 24 months of age.

I hope this has been of some help

Dr. Sanjay
