The teething process usually runs in a certain order. This is good for parents as it means they can quickly understand the best ways possible to help their toddler and of course, where about in the process their toddler is. This means they will also know roughly how long the remainder of the process will last.
Initially the pain that teething causes will come into place will before the baby shows any signs of teeth growing. If a parent finds their toddler becoming stressed or agitated, it is likely that the teething process has already begun, so they can start to prepare now. To ensure that the teething process has started, running a finger across the gums of a toddler will soon indicate whether or not they are actually teething.
Here is a quick hint for parents; there is a certain age toddlers usually start teething. This age is usually somewhere between the 7-12 month mark, although it can vary. The teeth that start to appear at this point in the process are called incisors. A few months later, after these have developed, the toddler will start to develop the molars. Usually this will start to happen between the 13th and 19th months. Of course, this can vary a great deal.
