Baby teeth and teething

What is teething

Teething can start as early as three months of age and continue until your child is around three years old.

Teething may cause some discomfort for your baby. Your baby can suck on a clean, cold wet cloth or teething ring to ease teething pain.

Ask your dental professional for further advice if needed.

Below is a guide to when baby teeth come through. Please note this is a guide only and times and the order may vary.
