What causes delay in growth of teeth in infant?
She needs a dental evaluation
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
Generally dental eruption starts by 6 months of age. Absence of teeth by 15 months of age indicates some problem and not necessarily the lack of calcium. The cause needs to be evaluated and I suggest that you consult a dentist at the earliest. It could be that the primary teeth have formed but have not erupted. It is also possible that the primary teeth have not formed at all. Treatment will depend on such factors.
A child of this age is supposed to get a combination of semisolids and milk. 16-24 full ounces (480-720 milliliters) a day is a reasonable amount of milk to be given per day.
Hope that helps.
