Answer: The canines typically erupt after the front 8 teeth and many children don't get their full set of primary teeth until about 2 yrs of age. You can go see the dentist, but we most likely don't take xrays on 18 mo old children, nor is there anything that can or needs to be done if the primary canines are not present.
