Teething Directory

Teething occurs when your baby's first set of teeth, called primary teeth, break through the gums. Teething usually begins around 6 months of age. But it is normal for teething to start at any time between 3 months and 12 months of age. By the time your child is about 3 years old, he or she will have all 20 primary teeth. Some babies are fussier than usual when they are teething. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about teething, what it looks like, how to make your baby more comfortable when it occurs, and much more.
