I say it's nothing to worry about, but my wife asked me to look into it because her chart says they were supposed to come in at 7 months. Instead the first one came in at 12mo, the next at 14mo and the next at 18mo. One is still missing and shows no sign of coming any time soon. Is there any need for concern?<br><br>
Thanks very much.

Kids grow at different rates- and that includes teeth. Just because "most kids get it by 7 months" doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with getting those teeth much later (or much earlier for that matter!)<br><br>
If you're really worried, you could take the baby to a dentist for an X-ray. If the tooth is in the gum but not descending yet, it will show up in the X-ray.
