In one word, yes. Nutritional problems can cause delayed teething. My 18 mo old has this problem. He has 10 teeth right now (4 molars and 6 incisors) He also has lots of food intolerances so I think that's causing poor absorption. I was veggie for 15 yrs and I think that's one of our root causes. He is allergic to all veggie protein (soy, seeds, nuts, dairy, eggs, beans, etc) so we are eating tons of meat now.
Cell salts have been extremely helpful. Whenever he takes them consistently he starts teething like crazy. Look for the thread in H&H.
More than meat or not, I think all the stuff in the curing cavities with nutrition is impt for teething like bone broth, clo with vitamins, raw milk if tolerated, butter oil a/or lots and lots of butter or ghee, etc...
