My son is 21 months old, and still no teeth. Is this really abnormal?

My son is 21 months old, and still no teeth. Is this really abnormal?

Probalbly not: By this age, your child should have about 8 teeth. Although there are vaiations in normal growth patterns, your child is really behind. You should see a pediatric dentist.
