Q.

Top teeth breaking gum

Hi my daughter is 9 and a half months and has 3 bottom teeth with a fourth one visible at bottom. Nurse said all 4 teeth on top should be through in the next week or two! She has days when she is extremely irritable - are the top teeth more painful than the bottom and should this stop when they cut the gum?

There is usually no difference btween teething pain btween upper and lower gums.
