Your child has red cheeks, whines and sleeps restlessly? It grabs greedily for every object and nibbles on it slobbering? Many babies are sensitive when they get their first teeth. A slightly elevated temperature or swollen gums are also possible, as a baby tooth breaks through the gums.
At about half a year, children start to teething. It is a process that can take up to 30 months. First, the lateral and upper incisors grow and finally the corner and molar teeth. By the third birthday at the latest most children have their complete milk dentition.
If infants suffer too much while teething, simple tricks can relieve pressure pain and relieve inflamed dental arches.
