Teething is the process by which an infants first teeth (the deciduous teeth, often called "baby teeth" or "milk teeth") sequentially appear by emerging through the gums. Teething may start as early as three months or as late as twelve months. The first teeth typically appear between six and nine months. It can take several years for all 20 teeth to complete the tooth eruption; they typically arrive in pairs.

It is a widespread misconception that teething causes fever. Teething may cause a slightly elevated temperature, but not rising into the febrile range (above 100-101F, or above 38-38.2C). Higher temperatures during teething are due to some form of infection, such as a herpes virus, initial infection of which is extremely widespread among children of teething age. [1]
