What Are Some Signs My Child is Erupting Teeth (Teething)?

Since the eruption of primary teeth is a normal and natural process, these signs and symptoms are to be expected:

  • Increased salivation
  • Putting fingers and hands into the mouth
  • Restlessness
  • Fretful behavior

Children may display other symptoms such as fever and systemic disturbances, such as croup, diarrhea, diaper rash etc. These are coincidental to eruption and should be treated as needed medically by the pediatrician as necessary.
