No it won't be a teething problem as all the teeth should have come through by about 7-11 months. It would however be god for your vet to examine her just to mke sure all the teeth are where they should be. This can be a terribly destructive habit and cost serious money in repairs. She is going to need some help from a brhaviour specialist. Where are you situated?
