Abstract: Teething is a common physical growth process in early childhood. The primary dentition generally occurs between 6 to 24 months of age. Many short term problems occur during this phase such as Diarrhoea, Irritability, Sleeplessness, Drooling of Saliva, Cold and Rashes etc. Homoeopathy plays an important role in teething troubles in children. Diarrhoea has been seen as the most common symptom associated with teething. Antibiotic abuse directly affects the immunity where as Homoeopathy enhances the immune system of the child. Symptom similarity was the basis of prescription in any kind of disease condition. So in dentition too, the troublesome symptoms are to be considered in forming a totality on the basis of which, similimum is to be selected.
