    do teeth always erupt in pairs?

    My son's first 6 teeth have always erupted in pairs, but now he's had his 7th lower lateral incisor for well over a month and still no sign of the other one. Is this still normal? Thanks.

    My son's teeth have done the same - he has 11 now, and they have never come up in pairs! Usually the 2nd isn't far behind though.

    Have a read through this on Eruption patterns.

    Baby’s First Teeth - Tooth Eruption Patterns

    They usually come in pairs, but don't worry if they don't. I'm sure the other will appear soon.
