babydoc - teething Teething is the process by which the crown of the tooth breaks through the surface of the gums, often causing pain or irritation in the process. To date, many theories and myths have surfaced in the home associating the tooth eruption process as a cause of other childhood illness symptoms such as fever, vomiting, and diarrhea, although a direct causal relationship has not yet been established.

Parental Myths About Infant Teething Are Widespread Infant teething is distressing and poorly understood, according to a study in a recent Journal of Pediatric and Child Health. Researchers found that as many as 55% of parents falsely believe teething can cause serious illnesses such as ear infections and diarrhea.
Teething Teething begins as early as 4 months or as late as 15 months. A new tooth erupts monthly until all twenty teeth are in by about age 3. Usually the bottom two central incisors come in first, followed by the top four incisors, and the two lateral incisors.
Teething and Dental Care In most children teething only causes increased drooling and a desire to chew on hard things, but in some it does cause mild pain and irritability and the gums may become swollen and tender. To help this you can vigorously massage the area for a few minutes or let him chew on a smooth, hard teething ring. Teething should not cause fever, diarrhea, sleeping problems or diaper rashes.
