One of the most common risks to an infant’s oral health is teething. Although teething is common, it can cause discomfort in your child. Teething occurs when their teeth break through their gums and into their mouth. This process is known as tooth eruption. However, it is also painful and can cause several symptoms to arise. Here are some facts about teething:

– If your child is teething, use teething tools that you can gently rub on their gums. This includes small spoons, teething rings, gauze pads, teething tools, or even your finger. Never use teething tablets for children under 2.
– If your child is showing signs of irritability, fussiness, loss of appetite, excessive drooling or if they seem to be struggling with sleeping at any time, it could be linked to teething.
– Severe symptoms of teething cause rashes, fevers, or diarrhea. If any of these symptoms are present, consult your child’s pediatric dentist.
– Make sure that if you’re using any pain relievers for your child, they have been approved beforehand by your pediatric dentist. Always make sure any over-the-counter pain relievers that you use are labeled for your child’s specific age.
