What are homeopathic remedies for teething? – Part 1

• Teething is the process in which an infant’s initial teeth which are also known as the deciduous teeth or “baby teeth” or “milk teeth” appear sequentially originating through the gums.
• Teething can initiate about three months or as late as twelve months.
• The first teeth typically appear between six and nine months.

• It leads to destruction of some cells in the gums.
• They separate which allows the teeth to come through.
