Dr Reckeweg Combination Tissue Salts - BC-21
Teething is the physiological process of the eruption of the teeth through the gyms. Discomfort and inflammation result from the pressure exerted against the periodontal tissue as the crown of the tooth breaks through the membranes.
General signs of teething include excessive drooling, biting on hard objects. Irritability, difficulty in sleeping and refusal of food. The two biochemic salts in BC21 are meant to aid in tardy dentition and many of the common problems experienced during teething.

It is of great use during dentition for symptoms of convulsions and spams occurring in a weak patient to stimulate nutrition. Delayed dentition, teeth that decay rapidly, useful especially for flabby, emaciated children with open posterior fontanels. Child is slow to learn to walk. Sputtering, pus-like diarrhoea and vomiting.
