Is teething just for toddlers?

I'm not a birth mother - but look after a nearly 7 year old who has had multiple dental extractions and fillings. All fine for last few months since procedures but today has complained of biting cheeks and sore gums. Also normally eats like a horse but very minimal today and a bit of a runny bum. Would think this was prob teething if a toddler - so could it be the same in an older child?

They get their first adult molars from age 6. These are in addition to the 20 baby teeth. Has he lost any baby teeth or does he have any wobbly ones?

Hi pixie - he's lost 2 naturally and had 4 removed by the dentist
