Dental Teething Tips

Baby teething and mom

Babies typically get their first set of teeth (lower, middle) by six months old. While it is exciting to see your child’s gummy smile become a toothy one, it can be a painful process for your baby.

Signs of teething include:

– Biting down on objects or fingers
– Increased drooling
– Rash or redness on the cheeks
– Loss of appetite
– Tender, swollen gums
– Excess drool

To make the process as comfortable as possible, here are some dental teething tips:

Tip #1 – Massage your baby’s gums with your finger.

Tip #2 – Use a chilled (not frozen) teething ring.

Tip #3 – Let your child suck on a cold, wet cloth.

If your child is in a lot of discomfort, talk to your dentist about a teething ointment to numb the gums.
