No medication will help, but I must say she is a bit old not to have a single tooth yet.Give her another 3 months and if she still has not developed any teeth then she should be seen by a paediatrician. There are important conditions where children do not develop any teeth.In all likelihood she is just very slow but we need to be sure about this.
