does involuntary head shaking of a baby related to teething?

No: Child in distress (teething hurts) may move head to try to relieve pain, but this is voluntary. If you can take video of our child making these movements, show to pediatrician or pediatric dentist.

NO: Teething does not cause involuntary head movement. Usually child will put fingers or other objects in their mouths when teething. This sounds like something that should be evaluated by your child's pediatrician.
