In brief: Teething

No reason to worry.
The teething in babies vary from babies born with teeth to babies having first tooth near age of 12 months, i can assure you if baby is otherwise healthy and normal on exam by youe pediatrician, teeth will come, just be patient.

In brief: Don't worry

Personally, my own son did not cut his first tooth until 13 months.
Some kids are early, others take longer. Everyone is different. The teeth are there and they will come in when the time is right. Seeing a pediatic dentist may ease your concerns.

In brief: Too early to worry.

Normal age range for eruption of the first tooth, which usually is the lower front tooth, is 6 to 10 months old.
Late bloomers can take even longer. If no signs of teething or eruption have occurred by one year old, i would recommend seeing a pedodontist (dental specialist for children).

In brief: Probably fine

Kids can have a huge range of ages when they erupt their first tooth.
I've seen kids 3-4months old, and kids a year old erupting their first tooth. Your child is probably just going to fall on the late side of the curve. However, if no teeth by one year, would check with a pediatric dentist.
