Fun and exciting news! We have felt (!) and seen our first shiny and sharp little tooth! Wahoo!
Not being a dentist, I can’t tell you which tooth it is, but I am going to make an educated guess. I think it’s the First molar – it’s pretty far back there on her right side, upper jaw.
Here is a chart for normal tooth eruption (www.drgreene.com):
|Eruption of Primary or Deciduous Teeth|
|Central incisors||6-8 months||5-7 months|
|Lateral incisors||8-11 months||7-10 months|
|Cuspids (canines)||16-20 months||16-20 months|
|First molars||10-16 months||10-16 months|
|Second molars||20-30 months||20-30 months|
And then from a DS website (http://altonweb.com/cs/downsyndrome/index.htm?page=desai.html):
“Tooth eruption is delayed in timing and sequence.”
So very true!! :)
