Molars already?
October 9, 2012 at 6:55 AM
Is it normal for a 1yr old to have 4 molars almost all the way thru? My son has his 4top teeth 2 bottom teeth. And is cutting his 2 bottom side and 4 molars (all almost thru) I'm kinda worried that they came in to early and his teeth may not be straight.

    So it looks as though your child's are close to the chart.

    my dd had her first tooth at 4 months and she has all her teeth now (2.5 yrs). my son is 5 months and he has no teeth yet. so i think it depends on the child. my nephew is almost 2 and doesnt have very many teeth at all.

    Has he been in to the dentist yet?  That would be the first step.  Not much you can do with baby teeth if they do not come in straight.  His jaw will grow to accomodate all teeth and the teeth will move for new ones.

     Every child is different as to when their teeth come in. I wouldn't worry if your child seems to be a little early getting teeth. Here's an old wives tale that may ease your mind: If a child's teeth come in early it means they are very smart! lol Of course this isn't true---but you can brag about it anyway. LOL

    It is normal for a child's teeth to come in anyway at any time.

    I agree with bmat and robyann.  Also, if you have more teeth at a young age, they do not always move to accomodate the new teeth coming in. I know this because when I was 2, I had more than a normal adult would have and they had to pull a few teeth so that I didn't grow up with double rows of teeth.  :)

    Mine's 17 months and has two molars with another coming in. They come in when they come in - nothing you can do about it.
