7. About teething babies

Babies’ teeth begin to form before they are born. These milk teeth generally start to push through between six and nine months. A teething baby may have discomfort, be irritable, salivate a lot and put its hand in its mouth to touch the sore gums. Dentinox Teething Gel numbs the pain and helps to stop any infection.
