Teething is the process by which an infant’s teeth sequentially appear by breaking through the gums. Teething may start as early as three months or as late, in some cases, as twelve months. Occasionally a baby may even have one or more teeth at birth. The typical time frame for new teeth to appear is somewhere between six and nine months. It can take up to several years for all 20 deciduous (aka “baby” or “milk”) teeth to emerge. The process of teething is sometimes referred to as “cutting teeth”. The infant teeth tend to emerge in pairs – first one upper incisor emerges then the other upper incisor emerges before the next set begin to emerge. The general pattern of emergence is: Milk teeth tend to emerge sooner in females than in males. The exact pattern and initial starting times of teething appear to be hereditary. When and how teeth appear in an infant has no bearing on the health of the child. Signs of teething may include: Teething has not been shown to cause fever.
