The differences of teething and why some teeth hurt more.

The first eight teeth that appear are almost always incisors: the relatively thin, flat, and sharp front teeth used for biting rather than chewing.

They cut through the gums fairly easily and therefore, cause little pain. The second year brings two sets of molars: the bigger and broader teeth that are used for chewing.

These teeth have a harder time breaking through the gums. For this reason, they tend to cause more pain than incisors.
