Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Mr XXXXXXX

I assume you meant to say that she does not have teeth and thats worrisome to you. Correct me if I am wrong.

Do not worry every child is unique and has different ages of appearance of teeth. There is no definitive age at which teeth appear, there is only reference age : Ideally teeth can appear anywhere between 6 months to 15 months of age. Slight delay without any other associated developmental delay , there does not seem to be cause for concern.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you

Take Care

Best Regards
Dr Shobha Deepak
