WHAT DOES TEETHING MEAN IN ENGLISH?

teething

Teething

Teething is the process by which an infant's first teeth sequentially appear by emerging through the gums, typically arriving in pairs. 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. Though the process of teething is sometimes referred to as "cutting teeth", when teeth emerge through the gums they do not cut through the flesh. Instead, special chemicals are released within the body that cause some cells in the gums to die and separate, allowing the teeth to come through. Teething may cause a slightly elevated temperature, but not rising into the febrile range, 100–101 °F. 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.

Definition of teething in the English dictionary

The definition of teething in the dictionary is the process of cutting one's baby teeth.
