Question: Hello doctor,

My son is 18 months old now, he has just developed 4 teeth in the front upper side and 4 teeth in the front bottom side. He has still not developed canine and molar teeth. Is this something which we have to worry about and get it checked?

Thanks,

The canine teeth erupt any time between 16 to 22 months, so there is absolutely nothing to worry about.

Just wait and watch.
