The arrival of your baby’s first teeth is an important milestone in their development. It’s understandable that a parent may become anxious if months pass and there’s no sign of those little chompers. However, there are several reasons why there may be a delay, and the age at which a child’s primary teeth (baby teeth) arrive can greatly vary. If your child’s teeth are coming in slowly or you’re noticing missing baby teeth at an age when other children already have theirs, don’t panic! Read why this might be the case and what you can and should do about it.
