Description

Teething is the normal developmental process of primary tooth eruption whereby the tooth moves from its position in the alveolar bone through the mucosa into the mouth. Parents/caregivers, physicians, and dentists often associate many localized and systemic symptoms with the teething process, including mouthing/biting, drooling, changes in appetite, and fever.
