Front premolar coming in at 8+ months?

I had never really counted Athena's teeth, but I just noticed her front premolars on the bottom coming in at 8 months. She is just short of 8 1/2 months and I was looking in her mouth and noticed the tip of the tooth on one side. The other side is in a bit more. Is this unusual? I thought typically they were all in by now. I just counted them all and including the two new ones that makes 22 on bottom 20 on top.

Good news is that she has 42 - the number she should have. The teeth are just coming in a month or so laterthan average which isn't much longer. It is possible that the teeth you are looking at are the molars not the premolars which are often confused -- the molars come in at around 5- 7 months according to this article: Teeth and Bite

I see what you mean. I just think she is a little slower than average. I never did look in my Sting's mouth at that age, but he did his serious chewing at 8 months not so much as a pup, so maybe that was why. I wouldn't worry but would give her plenty of items to chew on.
