Teething begins around 3-7 months and lasts until approximately 2 years of age, when all 20 baby teeth are pre-sent.


Generally, the first tooth to erupt comes in at 6 months.  This tooth is the bottom front incisor.


When a child is teething they tend to be irritable, drool, chew on everything and the gums may be red.


Fever and diarrhea are not related to teething.


Ease discomfort with a teething ring, clean damp washcloth or by rubbing gums with your finger or the back of a cold spoon.


Do not use teething cookies/biscuits because of the sugar content that can lead to tooth decay.


Use medications/ointments only on the advice of a dentist.


Remember to clean baby teeth as soon as they come in.
