Teething… What should be expected

Teething is a natural process where primary (baby) teeth grow through the gum tissue into the mouth. Many times this process is preceded by discomfort, fever, drooling, and the child chewing on anything within reach. Once the teeth push through the gum tissue, the discomfort usually subsides. Treat with Ambesol®/Orajel®; or if a low grade fever persists use Children’s Tylenol®.
