Does teething cause reflux? my two-year-old son used to have it really bad and now he's getting his molars it seems to have resurfaced.

But if he used to have his hands in the mouth all the time while teething, he probably induced the physiologic gag reflex and regurgitation.

I have not read of instances where teething causes reflux. Your child may just be sucking so much on the teeth that more saliva is present.

There is no evidence that teething may cause refux, check with pediatrician for causes and treatment.
