The itchiness would not start to go away until the point when the growth of our permanent teeth come to a complete stop, and by then we will be eight or nine months old. By then, we will have to bite stuff to relieve the itching.
When we grow up, we usually don’t bite stuff, unless when we got lonely with no company at home for a long time.
[Advice] Puppies love to bite due to their needs to grind teeth leading, sometimes, to no small damage. Adult dogs also bite when they feel lonely and bored. The best way to deal with it is to give them some teeth grinding toys. Make sure those toys are made of material that is safe, toxin-free and durable.
