The gums will usually flaten out, and alot of times the tooth will pop through on the back side of the gum then work its way up.Drooling is also a sign, but not always a reliable indicator. My neice started drooling and chewing about 6months, but didnt get a tooth untill almost 16 months. Some babies will pull at their ears also.Teething tablets seem to work pretty well. Alot of Drs blame teething on quite a few problems, so if you think there might be something wrong have a follow up appt.
