Toddler tooth pain

In the past two days my two year old son would not eat because he came down with some kind of stomach bug. He is feeling better now and I can get him to eat but when I get him to eat now he will eat some and then hold his mouth and say “ow”. Could he be teething again? I am pretty sure he has all his teeth but maybe not or maybe one is growing in some more I don’t know. Anyone have any clue that could help me figure it out? Please and thank you

    It’s possible he’s teething- it takes up to 3 years for teeth to come in completely!! I might have his pediatrician take a peek, because the dentist doesn’t do anything other than count the teeth for a while, so if you can just have them look, or call the advice nurse that would probably be the most beneficial!!! Until then, we give frozen gogurts to our son, and it helps numb those gums without medicine or anything.
