Teething – teething problems in children
The development and breakthrough of the first teeth is a normal natural process, which is often accompanied by complaints for the children. All symptoms and complaints associated with this development process are grouped together under the term teething problems. There are numerous teething problems that need to be examined and treated by a doctor. The symptoms and complaints are often difficult for parents to interpret and assess.
Although the process of toothing is a normal development for children, numerous painful symptoms occur when teeth break through the oral mucosa. Problems can occur early, for example if tooth development is well advanced at birth or if the teeth break through in the first month. Pathological changes in the order of teething combined with inflammation of the gums can also lead to difficulties. Hereditary dispositions and the duration of pregnancy can be the reason for the delayed development in teething. Cysts that can form during breakthrough are due to the accumulation of fluid in the so-called tooth sacs. The tooth bags surround the tooth germ. In many cases, where ulcers appear when teething, the causes have not yet been finally researched.
