In brief: Patience

Dental eruption patterns are quite variable in healthy babies with no deficiencies or abnormalities.
Some can have a tooth at birth, or not until 15mo. The average is 1/m starting at 4-6m. Those coming later often have multiple erupt @ the same time.

In brief: Depends on time

Most children start eruption 4- 6 months after birth.
By age 3 all the primary teeth (10 upper/10 lower) should be erupted. At age 7 the first permanent teeth start erupting continuing to age 10-12. Other that all 20 primary teeth"falling out" an additional 12 permanent molars will erupt. In the event a tooth does not erupt can be due to lack of space, congenitally missing or needs surgical assist.
