Abstract

Teething starts around 6 months of age and is complete by 30 months of age in most children. From medical professionals to grandmothers, everyone seems to have a list of symptoms they believe are linked to teething. It is important to remember that during this same time period of an infant's life, passive immunity due to maternal antibodies wanes and exposure to a wide variety of childhood illnesses occurs. Medical professionals need to be educated about teething to provide reasonable explanations to concerned caregivers. This article examines the signs and symptoms frequently attributed to teething and their possible alternative causes. The contemporary principles of the management of teething are discussed, including supportive measures.
