My son has no teeth at 8 months

My eight-month-old son is yet to bring out any teeth even when I was told that a normal baby should have his first tooth at 6 months.  Kindly advise me on what to do as I am getting very worried.

While it is true that the average age for the eruption of the first tooth in a child is six months, it is also on record that delays of up to 10 months or more is nothing to worry about. In view of this, I will therefore advise you not to let this delay in the appearance of your child’s teeth bother you.
