Normally, the babies are born without any tooth in the mouth; though rarely some babies may be born with a few teeth. But generally, babies experience the growth of their first tooth, when they are around 6 months old. At first, the lower incisor tooth is developed at the centre of the lower jaw and then, slowly the other teeth gradually erupt over the upper and lower jaws. By the time a baby is three years old, he/she gets all the baby teeth in the mouth. If anything else happens, the baby should be taken to a paediatric dentist as soon as possible.
In some babies, the primary teeth or the baby teeth may appear late. But if no tooth develops even when the baby is 13 months old, then it should be treated with concern and need to be referred to a paediatrician. There are several reasons of late baby teeth, but if no immediate treatment is done for the growth of the primary teeth in the baby’s mouth, it may lead to several other dental complications in future. This indicates that this baby will have to visit the dentist several times in his/her life, when he/she grows up.
