Little Teeth Truths

Should You Be Concerned If Your Child Has No Teeth At a Year Old?!

By Brianne Jones, RDH

Are you worried because your child has not popped their first tooth?! Well don't be!


Kids’ teeth are just like kids themselves….lots of variety! While there is a general timeframe that we anticipate the baby teeth coming in, there is much variability in the process. Typically, infants will get their lower front teeth (incisors) between six-10 months of age with the upper incisors a few months behind. However, that doesn’t mean they won’t get teeth earlier or later. Most children will get their first tooth by the time they are 1-year-old, but you shouldn’t panic if your child hasn’t sprouted a tooth by then. When your child visits their pediatric dentist at age one, they will evaluate your child individually to make sure there are not any other factors at play.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends establishing your child’s Dental Home by their first birthday to help ensure a healthy smile that lasts a lifetime!
