Imagine for a moment that you have a popcorn kernel stuck in your teeth — you know, the kind that pokes uncomfortably into your gums, that you can’t seem to dislodge, no matter how creatively you contort your tongue.  Bothersome, isn’t it?

Okay, now imagine that the popcorn kernel is actually a sharp piece of bone.  And instead of poking down into your gums, it’s actually embedded inside and pressing outward.

Then, throw in a runny nose, low-grade fever, excessive drooling, and…

There you have it!  Teething.
