We`ve been waiting for a long, and can see no
teeth
 
Our 9 months old son has no teeth. He is
developing normally. What shall we do?
 
Usually calf’s
teeth begin cutting when a baby is 6-8 months old. A 1 year old baby, as a
rule, celebrates his first birthday, having 4 upper and 4 lower incisors in
mouth. By 2 years first calf`s molars and canines cut. Second calf`s molars
appear in another 6 months. Complete forming of calf`s teeth usually finishes
in 3 years.
What shall
you do, if your baby has no teeth by 3 months? First of all, you should not
worry prematurely. Dentists consider delay of eruption of temporary teeth within
6 months quite natural. Usually boys` teeth cut later, than girls`.
 
Start with
careful examination of a baby`s gums: it`s quite possible, that they look swelled
and ablush, or, to the contrary, a gum is thin and pale, and under it you can
draw
and even see an edge of a tooth. To quicken teething, buy special circular toys
- stimulants of teething. Light massage of a gum with a clean finger or cold
tea spoon is also useful. Pressure on a gum usually lightens and quickens
teething, and cold reduces unpleasant sensations.
 
Violations
of terms of teething can be caused by general delay of growth on the background
of a range of baby`s diseases, first of all, while rachitis. Consult podiatrist:
probably, your baby needs vitamins or preparations of calcium for keeping
normal mineral exchange.
 
In rare
cases, children have adentia - absence of teeth beginnings. So, if your baby is
already over 1 year,
and his teeth still did not cut, you should consult dentist. You can check
presence of teeth beginnings with help of roentgenogram. X-rays can be
dangerous for a baby`s organism, so you should make this investigation only in
case of necessity and according to doctor`s prescription. Today there is a
possibility to lower harmful influence of X-rays, if you make a roentgenogram
with help of radiovisiographer. As a rule, every modern stomatological clinic
has such equipment.
